Barrington Hills Police to Participate in Regional Route 59 Traffic Safety Initiative

On Tuesday May 9, 2023, the Barrington Hills Police Department will join with numerous police agencies in northern Illinois to conduct a traffic safety initiative along the Route 59 corridor.

From Lake County to Will County, participating agencies will use education and traffic enforcement in an effort to increase the safety of motorists using the thoroughfare.  Barrington Hills Police Department’s efforts will concentrate on speed, distracted driving, and occupant restraint violations, as well as other safety violations.

Police departments from the cities of Aurora, Barrington, Barrington Hills, Bartlett, Fox Lake, Hoffman Estates, Naperville, Plainfield, Streamwood, and West Chicago are expected to participate in this initiative. Sheriff Departments from DuPage, Lake, and Will Counties, along with the Illinois State Police and Canadian National Railroad will also be participating.  Each jurisdiction will implement their own enforcement action based upon the needs of their communities.

The Barrington Hills Police Department would like to remind all motorists to always drive safely by using proper restraints, following the rules of the road, and avoiding distraction.
