Naperville/Ogden Ave DUI

Just heard in this morning's news that Naperville is #2 'burb in the state for DUI arrests. Guess we'll have to be more aware riding to the naperville spots this summer

Ernie,


Who was number 1? If Naperville is number 2, that means one thing, they are also way up in of the number of traffic stops also, therefore Naperville is not a rider "friendly" place, sounds like Naperville is just as bad as Barrington

That is pretty rough!

I know Roselle is up there high because 4 years ago i Know we were #1 because the Police Chief's 6 year old daughter was killed by a drunk driver and it became priority one for Roselle PD.
There were constant "Safety Check points" on Irving and Lake Street.

Its tough out there everywhere and you are always at risk IF you have to answer yourself..."Yeah...I am okay to drive."

I am not preaching by no means cause i have had my fair share of "Whew's"

I do recall reading someplace a while back that Buffalo Grove was #1. Park City was way up there, too.

Why should we have a problem riding thru N'ville? We don't drink and ride?

Naperville is ridiculous though. I've heard of people gettin' DUI when they blew .05 but their actions supposedly showed major intoxication..

Naperville and Waukegan are the top two.....

DUI deaths going up, suburban group says
By Dave Orrick Daily Herald Staff Writer
Posted Wednesday, April 14, 2004


Even though police in Illinois arrested more drunken drivers last year than the year before, fatalities from DUI-related crashes are expected to be up, too, according to a suburban anti-DUI group's annual report.

In addition, the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists is concerned that a bad economy, attention to homeland security, and general apathy might be allowing too many drivers to get away with illegally drinking and driving.

"A lot of departments are beefing up homeland security, and their budgets are stretched thin," said Charlene Chapman, executive director of Schaumburg-based AAIM.

"We need to make sure departments don't overlook the importance of traffic patrols."

She noted that fugitive felons and would-be terrorists are often nabbed in otherwise routine traffic stops.

Statewide, police made more arrests for DUI in 2003 than in 2002, continuing a three-year trend, she said. But that trend is counterbalanced by a generally steady increase in fatalities in alcohol-related wrecks from 1997 to 2002. Hard numbers aren't available yet for 2003 DUI fatalities, but Chapman said early indications from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration suggest the trend continued last year.

AAIM's annual report, which includes a department-by-department survey and a review of state records, showed places with an established emphasis on DUI enforcement - including numerous suburbs - continued to lead the state.

Even though both Naperville and Waukegan made fewer arrests in 2003 than the year before, both maintained their status in the top two, aside from Chicago, according to the report.

And like their largest cities, police in Lake and DuPage counties were among the most prolific of suburbs. For example, nine of the top 45 departments for total DUI busts were from DuPage County. And six of the top 15 departments were located within Lake County, when measured by arrests per officer, an indicator of a department's emphasis on DUI enforcement.

Focusing on enforcement can have a huge impact, Chapman said, pointing to Springfield, which hired two officers solely responsible for nabbing drunken drivers and saw arrests increase by 378, or 169 percent, from 2002 to 2003.

"Which of those drivers might have gone out and killed or seriously injured someone? Who can say?" Chapman said. "But they're off the road."

The other top departments cited for increasing their DUI busts were Mount Prospect, Barrington-Inverness, Villa Park, Wilmette and Itasca.

I didn't mean to imply that we drink & ride. I meant to stress that for all of us that like to ride to Naperville that riders should be on the lookout for drunk drivers.

Because those stats clearly state that more drunk drivers are in Naperville than any other town??

Or is it because some cops there are total ass-wads?

There aren't more drunk drivers in Naperville, just more cops to arrest people that are driving intoxicated. DUI's and speeding tickets are Napervilles cash cow, because the cops don't have anything else to do besides traffic stops.

no, it only implies that more drunks are caught there.

How you found us: My psychic advisor told me about it
 
I don't know... does anybody else find it somewhat wrong to be making this almost a competition amongst PD's? I mean, sure, on one hand, it means less drunk drivers on the road. But on the other hand, it also leads to instances where they are encouraged to make BS arrests... DUI when somebody blows a 0.0, and it becomes the officers "opinion" that you are operating under the influence. DUI when you leave the bar, know you're wasted, and decide to sleep it off in your car before heading home... (this happened to a buddy of mine in Crystal Lake.)

I wonder if these statistics that count towards a city getting the title of "#1 in DUI arrests" accounts for the number of DUI cases that get thrown out in court...

I will. Aurora for once. They just don't have a ridiculously high cop to civilian ratio.

And what are you sayin, people aren't supposed to buy booze at a liquer store?
