3/8 on 38 in West Chicago
The West Chicago Police Department has announced an upcoming traffic campaign. Officers will be out in force on Illinois Route 38 on Sunday March 8, 2015 for the annual 3/8 on 38 traffic safety initiative. Sergeant Spencer Kroning stated, “As we move away from a difficult winter into the warmer weather of spring, we want to get the message out to drive safely”. Officers will be visibly out on patrol monitoring highway traffic violations including, but not limited to:
- Seat belt and child restraint violations
- Distracted driving
- Impaired driving
- Traffic signal violations
Last year on March 8, 2014 more than 50 traffic citations and written warnings were issued in an effort to combine enforcement with education. “We have seen a decline in traffic fatalities in recent years and would love to see that trend continue,” said Kroning.
Sergeant Kroning urges all motorists to drive carefully, not only on Sunday, March 8, 2015 on Rt. 38, but every day on every roadway. Questions or comments are welcome. Please contact Sergeant Spencer Kroning at email@example.com or by phone at (630) 293-2222.
