Illinois State Police to conduct Roadside Safety Checkpoint
The Addison Police Department along with the Illinois State Police will conduct a Roadside Safety Checkpoint from 9 p.m., to 2 a.m., Friday, April 21, and Saturday April 22, on Illinois Route 83 south of Lake St.
Vehicles traveling southbound will be stopped in a pre-established, systematic fashion for a brief inspection of safety and driver violations. Police will check vehicle registrations, driver’s licenses, proof of insurance, and driver sobriety in addition to vehicle safety violations.
The purpose of conducting the Roadside Safety Checkpoint is to enhance the safety of the motoring public in the Village of Addison. A statewide coordinated effort to reduce drinking and driving is underway and the Addison Police Department is a proud partner in this venture.
The hope is that citizens can look at this minor inconvenience as their contribution to the safety of the motoring public and their opportunity to be part of the solution.
