Kenilworth Police Join Forces with Agencies Statewide for 2018 Illinois Speed Awareness Day Campaign Kenilworth, IL – During Illinois Speed Awareness Day this July 25th, the Kenilworth Police Department is taking a proactive approach to promote safety for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists through both education and enforcement. In Illinois during 2016, speed was the reason for 34.2% of all fatal crashes. That’s 369 deaths for the year, or one life every 23.7 hours. These lives can be easily saved by being aware of our speed and understanding how speeding impacts a crash. In urban areas, speeding can have the following consequences: • The higher the speed at impact, the more severe the injuries sustained. • 37.8% of the total injury crashes are speed-related. • When speeding there is a greater chance that other road users will misjudge how fast you are traveling. • Speeding extends the distance required to stop a vehicle in emergency situations. • Speeding reduces a driver’s ability to navigate safely around curves or objects in the roadway. • A 1% decrease in travel speed reduces injuries by about 2%, a serious crash by 3% & a fatal crash by 4%. Let’s all do our part by taking a proactive approach to prevent fatalities and reduce injuries on the roadways by being aware of our speed and obeying the speed limit signs ALL the time.

West Nile Virus Positive Mosquitoes Found in Kenilworth The North Shore Mosquito Abatement District has found the first West Nile virus positive mosquitoes to occur in our trap in Kenilworth this year. Two batches of mosquitoes, collected on July 11, 2018, from an NSMAD trap in Kenilworth, tested positive for West Nile virus in their lab on July 12. This year, WNV positive batches of mosquitoes have also been found in NSMAD traps located in Evanston, Glencoe, Glenview, Lincolnwood, Morton Grove, Niles, Northbrook, Northfield, Skokie and Winnetka. The risk of being infected with West Nile virus is increasing and we consider it to be in the moderate range. Human infections typically occur during the months of July-September. The NSMAD recommends that residents take personal protection measures to minimize mosquito bites including: using insect repellent, wearing loose fitting clothing and avoiding peak mosquito feeding times during the hours around dawn and dusk. Residents are urged to examine their property and eliminate any items that can hold water, particularly smaller items that may be easily overlooked. Remember, if it can hold water, it can breed mosquitoes. The North Shore Mosquito Abatement District (NSMAD) is a local government agency responsible for controlling the regional mosquito population in order to reduce the risk of disease from mosquito borne illness and minimize the negative impact mosquitoes have on the quality of life in the municipalities of Deerfield (Cook County, east of Pfingsten Road) Evanston, Glencoe, Glenview (east of Pfingsten Road), Golf, Kenilworth, Lincolnwood, Morton Grove, Niles (east of Harlem Avenue), Northbrook (east of Pfingsten Road), Northfield, Skokie, Wilmette, and Winnetka.
