The Lincolnshire Police Department will participate in the Memorial Day traffic safety campaign “Stop Speeding Before it Stops You” from May 18 to June 1, 2020.

The campaign is in conjunction with hundreds of other police departments across the country and is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds managed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Police are specifically targeting speeding and aggressive drivers during this event. Although traffic has been lighter for the past six weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the lighter traffic has led to higher speeds on roadways.

Help protect everyone using our roadways, especially with the summer months ahead and the anticipated increase in pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Please remember – stop speeding before it stops you!
