[ARCHIVED] Sheriff’s Office Participating in Regional Route 59 Traffic Safety Initiative

On Tuesday, May 9, 2023, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office will join with numerous police agencies in northern Illinois to conduct a traffic safety initiative along the Route 59 corridor.

From Lake County to Will County, participating agencies will use education and traffic enforcement in an effort to increase the safety of motorists using the thoroughfare. The efforts will concentrate on speed, distracted driving, and occupant restraint violations, as well as other safety violations.  

Police departments from the cities of Aurora, Barrington, Barrington Hills, Bartlett, Fox Lake, Hoffman Estates, Naperville, Plainfield, Streamwood, and West Chicago are expected to participate in this initiative. Sheriff’s offices from DuPage, Lake, and Will Counties along with the Illinois State Police and Canadian National Railroad will also be participating. Each jurisdiction will implement their own enforcement action based upon the needs of their communities.

The sheriff’s office campaign is administered and funded by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds managed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
