Drinking and Driving

The Department has successfully participated in the “You Drink & Drive, You Lose” and “Click It or Ticket”

The Illinois Department of Transportation recognizes citizens who escaped serious injuries in crashes from wearing their safety belts as “Saved by the Belt” members. IDOT presented them with medals and certificates. IDOT has also recognized 5 Police Officers for their DUI Enforcement efforts.

Seat Belts and Inspections

Approximately 7 out of 10 kids in child safety seats ARE NOT properly buckled in.

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause death of children, ages 3-14.

Why?

In many cases, children are not properly buckled into their child safety seats. Additionally, some parents don’t realize that a booster seat is vital to ensuring children fit safely in their vehicle’s seat belt.

Don’t Take a Chance. Have Your Child’s Safety Seat Inspected.
