Cook County Sheriff’s Police will conduct a roadside safety checkpoint in Leyden Township on the night of July 13, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart announced today.
At the checkpoint officers will ensure drivers are complying with Illinois driver’s license and registration requirements as well as determine whether anyone is driving impaired.
The goal of the checkpoint is to emphasize roadway safety, increase seatbelt usage by motorists, promote the importance of safe travel and help reduce the number of vehicle crashes in Cook County.
The enhanced patrol is funded through a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation.
