Elmhurst Police

In an effort to save lives by reducing fatal and serious-injury crashes, the Elmhurst Police Department continues to take part in a year-long grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), which provides funding for additional enforcement of DUI and seatbelt laws.  As part of the grant, periodic roadside safety checkpoints will be set up throughout the year.


On Friday, April 28th, 2017, a roadside safety checkpoint will take place on a major roadway in Elmhurst. The safety checkpoint will begin at 11:30 PM on Friday night and continue until 3:30 AM on Saturday morning.  During the safety checkpoint, vehicles will be stopped at a predetermined interval and checked for violations.


Roadside safety checkpoints have proven to be a significant deterrent to impaired driving.


As always, motorists are encouraged to drive carefully, to buckle up, and to avoid drinking when driving.
