Streamwood Police Conduct Roadside Safety Check
Release date: 8/24/2015
A roadside safety check will be conducted by the Streamwood Police Department during the upcoming weeks. The safety check is being conducted to promote the safety and well being of the motoring public and to provide a deterrent for those who might violate the Illinois Compiled Statutes or the Village Code of Streamwood. The safety check will be used to detect persons who are operating a motor vehicle with defective equipment, without a valid drivers license or permit, without proof of insurance, not complying with occupant protection laws or while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
Plans have been established to conduct the checks at locations and times, which will provide the maximum opportunity for the detection and apprehension of motorists who drive under the influence of alcohol or other substances.
