CPD: No DUIs in Lakeview over the weekend

September 17, 2013|By Rachel Cromidas, @rachelcromidas | RedEye

The Chicago Police Department beefed up its police presence in Lakeview Saturday night to catch drunk drivers,  but they didn't find any.

CPD routinely sends a special traffic task force to neighborhoods around the city to check for DUI offenders and other traffic law violators. The weekend of Sept. 14 they went to the 19th District, which includes the bar and night club heavy Wrigleyville and Boystown.

Officials said in a release that they caught no drunk drivers, but issued more than 100 citations for less severe traffic violations, unsafe vehicle violations, and drivers license violations.

This weekend the task force will be on the Near West Side, the release said.
