On Friday, May 27, 2022, the Lombard Police Department will conduct a roadside safety checkpoint on Roosevelt Road during the evening hours. Vehicles will be stopped at a predetermined interval during the roadside safety check and checked for violations. These checkpoints have proven to be a significant deterrent to impaired driving.
The Lombard Police Department participates in a year-long grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). The goal of the grant is to save lives by reducing fatal and severe injury crashes with additional enforcement of DUI and seatbelt laws. As part of the grant, periodic roadside safety checkpoints will be set up throughout the year.
Motorists are always encouraged to drive carefully, buckle up, and not drink and drive.
