 Elmhurst Police Announce Extra Enforcement Campaign

The Elmhurst Police Department continues to take part in a year-long grant that was 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 will begin on March 12th and continue through March 18th to encompass the St. Patrick’s Day holiday. The 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 evening hours, the period that tends to have the most fatal and serious-injury traffic crashes.  

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