SEAT BELT ENFORCEMENT COUNTYWIDE

Home > Press Page

Thursday, March 13, 2014 – Cook County Sheriff’s Police will conduct a roadside safety checkpoint tomorrow (Friday) night in Ford Heights, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.

At the checkpoint officers will ensure drivers are complying with Illinois driver's license and registration requirements as well as determine whether anyone is driving impaired.

The checkpoint's aim is to emphasize roadway safety, increase seatbelt usage by motorists, promote the importance of safe travel, and help reduce the number of vehicle crashes in Cook County.

Also, tonight through Sunday, Cook County Sheriff’s police officers will be conducting enforcement efforts countywide, focusing on seat belt violations.

During enforcement patrols on Jan. 31, Feb.1, and Feb. 2 Sheriff’s Police issued 18 citations for seat belt violations, five for driving without insurance, two for cell phone/texting use while driving, and two for driving on a suspended/revoked license.

The checkpoint and the enforcement patrols are funded through a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation
