***TRAFFIC TIP TUESDAY*** EEEEEK, my teenager is driving...Scares the heck out of me, what should I know. (Other than stay off the sidewalks;) In Illinois the Graduated Licensing Law was enacted January 2008 to lower the rate of teen driver fatalities, and it's worked. The law adjusted some stuff in the permit stage, but more importantly, it created driving restrictions for young drivers after they obtain their license. Basic overview: (there's lots more here http://ow.ly/Owys50f397D ) - DRIVERS LICENSE IS NO GOOD Sun.-Thurs., 10 p.m.-6 a.m.; Fri.-Sat., 11 p.m.-6 a.m. unless coming/going directly from church/work/school/home. Otherwise, they are driving with a No Valid License (an arrestable offense) - First 12 months of having license, or until the driver turns 18, whichever occurs first, limited to one passenger under age 20, unless it's a sibling, stepsibling, child or stepchild of the driver. - ANY Cell phone use while driving, including a hands free device, is prohibited for drivers under age 19. - If the new driver gets a ticket while driving it's a mandatory court appearance that A PARENT MUST ATTEND! (day off of work) - 2 tickets in a 24 month time frame means they get their license suspended. ($$$$$) - Parents can view their kids driving records anytime from this page (link towards bottom) - Parents must give consent for kid to get a license, and can revoke that consent at any time. Any questions, contact your local friendly police officer!!! Deep breaths, bite nails, repeat.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims and emergency responders of the horrific church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rockford Police Department and the family of officer Jaimie Cox, who was killed in the line of duty this morning.

Happy Friday Plainfield!!! Here's some sage advice from a wise Sicilian: "Don't fall victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is 'Never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well known is this: 'Never forget to take your belongings and lock your car doors.'" - Ofc. Vizzini Make it a great weekend!!!

Just because it is November, it does not mean we cannot experience severe weather in northern Illinois. Monitor your NOAA radio and future forecasts for any updates and review your severe weather plans. Stay safe, Plainfield!

***REVERSE 911 FOLLOW UP*** https://www.willcountyema.org/emergency-notification-sign-up PER WCEMA SKIP THE STEP WHERE YOU PICK ALERT SUBSCRIPTIONS!!! Once you add your information in the beginning steps, your phone number is on the list. The step where you pick your alerts is for general alerts, not our REVERSE 911. Confused? So am I. But I tested it and it works, so please just skip it.

***PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT*** There have been a few incidents recently where the Plainfield Police have used REVERSE 911 to send messages out to the public. There is one major hurdle with these, the database is only automatically populated with landline information...and not everyone has a landline. So for those of us (yeah me included) that don't have home phones, just cell phones, WE ARE NOT AUTOMATICALLY IN THE REVERSE 911 SYSTEM. The REVERSE 911 System is run by the Will County Emergency Management Agency, not the Plainfield Police Department. The PPD creates the message and sets the target area, but it is facilitated by WCEMA. So, the $64,000 question...How do I get my cell info in the system? Follow the link to the Will County EMA Emergency Notification page, create an account and put in your info. You will then be added to the list. https://www.willcountyema.org/emergency-notification-sign-up SKIP THE STEP WHERE YOU PICK A LOCATION!!! Once you add your information in the beginning steps, your phone number is on the list. The step where you pick your alerts is for general alerts, not our REVERSE 911. Confused? So am I. But I tested it and it works, so please just skip it. (If you are not in Plainfield, check with your local police department if they have Reverse 911 and how you confirm you are on the list. Not all use the same system)
