The Evanston Police Department will be conducting a Roadside Safety Check initiative, beginning at 10 p.m. on Friday July 1, and continuing through 4 a.m. on Saturday July 2. The safety check will be conducted in a high volume traffic area within the City of Evanston. 

The objectives of the Roadside Safety Check are designed to reduce traffic crashes and the liability associated with violations of vehicular safety laws. 

The goal is to detect and enforce violations associated with impaired driving, as well as any occupant restraint violations. Additional enforcement activities will focus on compliance with the Illinois driver license statutes, liability insurance compliance, and other vehicle statutes and/ or ordinances.
