Roadside Safety Checkpoint Notice

The Addison Police Department will be conducting a Roadside Safety Checkpoint from 9:00 PM on Friday, June 22, 2018 to 1:00 AM, Saturday June 23, 2018 for vehicles traveling eastbound on Lake Street east of John F. Kennedy Drive.

Vehicles traveling eastbound on Lake Street on June 22 will be stopped in a pre-established, systematic fashion for a brief inspection of safety and driver violations. Police will be checking vehicle registrations, driver’s licenses, proof of insurance and driver sobriety, in addition to vehicle safety violations.

The purpose of conducting the Roadside Safety Checkpoint is to enhance the safety of the motoring public in the Village of Addison. A statewide, coordinated effort to reduce drinking and driving is underway; and the Addison Police Department is a proud partner in this venture.

Our hope is that citizens can look at this minor inconvenience as their contribution to the safety of the motoring public and their opportunity to be part of the solution.

If you have any questions or request additional information, please contact Sergeant Dennis Kotlinski at (630) 543-3080.

Summer Safety Tips

Summer is here; and with the long summer break, you will see more children outside.  They may not always be paying attention.  Please drive carefully and follow these important safety tips:

  • Drive the speed limit.
  • Watch for bike riders and pedestrians in the roadway.
  • Slow down upon approaching a crosswalk and stop at the crosswalk if pedestrians are present.
  • Never leave children or pets in the car unattended.  Temperatures inside a vehicle can spike dangerously high in just a few minutes.

Community Response Unit - Tip of the Month

Letting your grass and weeds grow higher than 6 inches makes your home look unoccupied. Burglars most often choose homes that look unoccupied, have the easiest access, offer the greatest amount of cover and have the best escape routes.
