Enforcement of the traffic laws put into place to improve the safety of all roadway users on Illinois roadways is critical to eliminate traffic related fatalities and serious injuries. IDOT provides grants and works with its law enforcement safety stakeholders to ensure efforts are focused on priority emphasis areas and locations to have the greatest impact on safety. The various enforcement efforts and campaigns are tied to strategies identified in the Illinois SHSP. We do not specifically do enforcement….we support the ability of our safety stakeholders to do enforcement.
The SHSP focuses around several emphasis areas. Enforcement Activities span across the emphasis areas but specifically focus on: Alcohol and Impaired Driving, Occupant Protection, Driver Behavior and Awareness, and Large Trucks.
