State Troopers Gave Half as many Tickets in October than in September

Posted by wlpo on November 8, 2016

Did you use a little more caution when you were driving on the Interstates last month?

State Troopers weren’t as active when it came to lawbreakers last month compared to September. According to the latest numbers released, District 17 Police gave out only 286 tickets last month compared to 579 the month prior.

Alcohol and drug-related arrests were down to 8 from 27 in September. Other criminal activity was pretty much the same with 25 arrests made there.

Unfortunately, troopers had to handle 49 crashes in LaSalle, Bureau, and Putnam County in October. While none of the crashes were fatal, that was an increase from 39 two months ago
