Focus on Traffic Safety

To enhance safety for everyone this weekend, the Downers Grove Police Department will conduct traffic patrols focused on impaired drivers and seat belt violations.

Whether you attend a parade or make a trip to a local pub, if a friend is showing signs of being impaired, don't let them get behind the wheel.

  • Plan a safe way home as part of your party plans.
  • Designate a sober driver.
  • If you have had a couple of drinks and are feeling "buzzed" don't drive because YOU ARE IMPAIRED.
  • Call a taxi; call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation to ensure that you get home safely.
