Briefs: Wheaton nabs speeders

Posted Wednesday, July 11, 2007

Wheaton police issued more than 200 tickets for speeding in June, during a special monthlong traffic enforcement program funded by an Illinois Department of Transportation grant.

The focus of the campaign targeted speed enforcement along Roosevelt and Butterfield Roads. Wheaton officers issued 212 speeding citations and apprehended seven motorists driving on a suspended or invalid driver's license. Wheaton will continue the enforcement campaign periodically through September.
