The East Hazel Crest Police Department announced that it will be joining Law Enforcement agencies throughout the state by increasing enforcement activities during the upcoming holiday period. In an effort to encourage the public to increase compliance with Illinois motor vehicle regulations, the East Hazel Crest Police Department will be conducting a Roadside Safety Check Point the weekend of May 15th through the 17th.
Drunk driving is a serious crime and continues to cause too many deaths and serious injuries to innocent victims due to crashes involving the use of alcohol. These crashes and their devastating consequences can cause a lifetime of suffering for the victims and their families.
The Check Points are conducted to remove impaired or unlicensed drivers from our roadways making the streets safer for all motorists to travel. We hope that people will view this Roadside Safety Check as a positive step to increase everyone’s safety while traveling. Motorists will have a minimum delay of only a minute or two if there are no violations detected during their brief stop at the Check Point.
As always, the East Hazel Crest Police Department appreciates your cooperation and hopes that you will support this and any other efforts to improve highway safety in the south suburban area and the state of Illinois.
DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE AND ALWAYS BUCKLE UP.
