Law Enforcement Mobilizations
IDOT utilizes funding from a variety of sources both state and federal to provide state and local law enforcement agencies the ability to mobilize enforcement efforts.
In an effort to change driver and passenger behavior, IDOT, with funding from NHTSA, funds a number of law enforcement efforts with the Illinois State Police, county, and municipal law enforcement agencies to encourage people to Buckle Up, Drive Sober, avoid Distracted Driving, and use proper child restraint devices.
IDOT's highway safety funds are made available annually through NHTSA. Highway Safety Program grants ("Section 402") are designed to help state agencies, counties and communities initiate programs to address traffic safety related problems and generally to promote traffic safety on our roadways.
