The Elmhurst Police Department continues to take part in a year-long traffic enforcement grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).  The goal of this grant is to save lives by reducing fatal and serious injury crashes through additional enforcement of DUI and seatbelt laws.

As part of the grant, periodic roadside safety checkpoints are being set up throughout the year, with vehicles being stopped at a predetermined interval and checked for violations. These checkpoints have proven to be a significant deterrent to impaired driving.

On Friday, October 19th 2018, a roadside safety checkpoint will take place on a major roadway in Elmhurst beginning at 11:30 PM on Friday night and continuing until 3:30 AM on Saturday morning.

Motorists are always encouraged to drive carefully, to buckle up, and not to drink and drive.
