Elmhurst Police News

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) that provides funding for additional enforcement of DUI and seatbelt laws. Roadside safety checkpoints have proven to be a significant deterrent to impaired driving; therefore, as part of the grant, periodic roadside safety checkpoints are being set up throughout the year.


On Friday August 18th, 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.


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