Stay safe by doing the #9PMRoutine – Ensure that your vehicle, home and garage are safely locked, and don’t leave any of your property outside unattended for a thief to walk off with!

The Berwyn Police Department will be issuing additional citations in the overnight hours. This campaign will feature high visibility enforcement combined with a variety of outreach activities including additional law enforcement activity. Extra emphasis will be given to the late night hours when statistics show the most people drink and drive and the fewest buckle up. On November 9, 2018 The Berwyn Police Department will be conducting Roadside Safety Checks at 26th and Riverside Dr. as well as Pershing and Oak Park. The costs of driving impaired or unbuckled are high both financially and emotionally when crashes occur. The Berwyn Police Department is stepping up late night enforcement efforts making sure impaired drivers are off the road and motorists are buckled up.

This Halloween, Keep the Scares off the Road - The Berwyn Police Department is cracking down on impaired driving The Berwyn Police Department today reminded motorists of the dangers of impaired driving, particularly on Halloween when little ghouls and goblins are out in neighborhoods and on busy streets after dark. If you plan to be out celebrating, keep this fearsome warning in mind: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over. “If you know you’re partying this Halloween, make sure you designate a sober driver to get you home safely,” said Division Commander Sandro Scardamaglia. “Don’t put yourself, or others, at risk by driving impaired by alcohol or drugs.” Each year throughout Illinois, hundreds die in impaired-driving crashes, while others face the ramifications of a DUI, including jail time, loss of license, and thousands of dollars spent on attorney’s fees, fines and lost wages. The Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over enforcement campaign urges everyone to follow these simple tips to help keep our roads safe during Halloween: • Plan a safe way to get home before you attend a party. • Designate a sober driver, take public transportation, use your favorite ride-sharing service or call a sober friend or family member to get home. • Walking while impaired can be just as dangerous as driving impaired. Designate a sober friend to walk you home. • If you see an impaired driver on the road, contact local law enforcement as soon as it is safe to do so. • If you see an impaired person about to drive, take their keys and help them get home safely. • Buckle up: It’s your best defense against impaired drivers. The Halloween enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.
