The Elmhurst Police Department continues to take part in a year-long grant which has been awarded by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). The goal of this grant is to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes with additional enforcement of DUI, seatbelt, and distracted driving laws.

The next campaign of this grant began on October 26th and continues through November 1st. This period of extra enforcement will encompass the Halloween holiday. This grant allows extra officers to be on patrol looking for impaired drivers, seatbelt violations, and distracted drivers. The majority of this extra enforcement will take place during the overnight hours, which is the most dangerous time to be on the roadway.

Motorists are encouraged to drive safely and to always buckle up. Motorists who are planning on drinking should make alternate driving arrangements. People are also encouraged to contact police if they see a vehicle that appears to be driven by an intoxicated driver.
