Elmhurst Police Press Release: Traffic Enforcement Detail


For Immediate Release
March 13, 2019

For Information Contact: Commander Jim Gandy (630) 530-3050


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

The next campaign of this grant will begin on March 14th and continue through March 18th, encompassing St. Patrick’s Day. This grant allows extra officers to be on patrol looking for impaired drivers, distracted drivers, and seatbelt violations. The majority of the extra enforcement will take place during the overnight hours, which is statistically the most dangerous time to be on the road.  

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