St. Patrick’s Day DUI & Seatbelt Enforcement Campaign
The Bartlett Police Department will be participating in the Illinois Department of Transportation’s "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" St. Patrick’s Day DUI and Seatbelt Enforcement Campaign from Thursday, 3/13 through Monday, 3/17.
The Police Department’s participation in these statewide traffic safety initiatives is fully funded by a grant through IDOT's Division of Traffic Safety in order to deter impaired infractions and to achieve a higher use of safety belts, child safety seats and booster seats. The department was awarded a total of 40 additional patrol hours to conduct DUI saturation patrols and 20 additional patrol hours to conduct seatbelt saturation patrols.
Drivers are encouraged to always wear your seat belts, assign a designated driver, and not let any of your friends or family members drive under the influence of alcohol.
Recycle Your Holiday Lights - extended thru 3/31
Ice and Snow - Take it Slow
The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), Illinois Tollway and the Illinois State Police (ISP) recently joined forces to launch the “Ice and Snow - Take it Slow” winter campaign, encouraging motorists to drive defensively and safely in winter weather conditions.
Tips to Remember:
~ reduce your speed
~ allow for extra travel time
~ increase distances between vehicles
~ avoid unnecessary lane changes
~ don’t crowd the plow – a snow plow operator’s field of vision is restricted. You may see them, but they may not see you.
~ watch out for black ice on roads that appear clear but can be treacherous. Take it slow when approaching intersections, off-ramps, bridges and shady areas, which are prone to black ice.
~ always keep your gas tank at least two-thirds full to help prevent the vehicle’s fuel line from freezing.
~ do not travel during bad weather unless absolutely necessary - if you do have to make a trip, check the forecast and make sure someone is aware of your travel route.
~ always carry an emergency car care kit that contains jumper cables, flares or reflectors, windshield washer fluid, a small ice scraper, traction material, blankets, non-perishable food and a first aid kit.
~ carry a cell phone and dial *999 for roadway assistance.
~ always wear a safety belt.
Motorists are urged to check travel conditions before any trip. You can get road condition information by calling 1-800-452-IDOT (4368), Illinois Tollway information by calling 1-800-TOLL-FYI or go to www.gettingaroundillinois.com and click on the “winter road conditions” icon.
Coyotes are common throughout Illinois. According to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the number of coyotes has increased dramatically during the past 30 years.
Usually it will be easier to change human and domestic animal use of an area than to capture a coyote. Unwanted Incidents with coyotes can typically be prevented by removing resources that attract coyotes. (read more on the health & safety page....)
