Elmhurst Police Announce Holiday Traffic Enforcement Campaign


With a goal of saving lives by reducing the number of fatal and serious- injury crashes, the Elmhurst Police Department continues to take part in a year-long traffic enforcement grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). This grant provides funding for extra officers to be on patrol watching for impaired drivers, seatbelt violations, and distracted drivers. 


The next campaign for the grant coincides with the Christmas/New Year’s period. Extra officers will be on duty beginning Friday, December 17th through Monday, January 3rd, 2022. The majority of extra enforcement will take place during the overnight hours, which are statistically the most dangerous time to be out on the roads. 


Motorists are encouraged to drive safely and to always buckle up.  Anyone who is planning to be drinking while out for the evening should make alternate driving arrangements.  Citizens are also encouraged to contact police if they see a vehicle that appears to be driven by an intoxicated driver.


This enforcement campaign is supported through federal funds administered by IDOT.
