Elmhurst Police Announce Extra Traffic Enforcement This Week

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, seatbelt, and distracted driving laws by allowing extra officers to be on patrol looking for impaired and/or distracted drivers and seatbelt violations. 


The next campaign for the grant coincides with St. Patrick’s Day. Extra officers will be on duty this week starting on Monday, March 14th. The majority of extra enforcement will take place during the overnight hours, statistically the most dangerous time to be on the roadways. Motorists are encouraged to drive safely and always buckle up. As always, anyone who plans on drinking should have a designated sober driver or make alternate transportation 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.
