If you drive along Route 59 obey all traffic laws or you may get a ticket on Thursday, May 9th. The Will County Sheriff’s Department will join with numerous police agencies in northern Illinois to conduct a traffic safety initiative along the Route 59 corridor.

From Lake County to Will County, participating agencies will use education and traffic enforcement in an effort to increase the safety of motorists using the thoroughfare. Will County Sheriff’s Departments efforts will concentrate on speed, distracted driving and occupant restraint violations as well as other safety violations.

The following departments are expected to participate in the initiative: Naperville Police Department, Warrenville Police Department, Plainfield Police Department, Streamwood Police Department, Shorewood Police Department, Joliet Police Department, Wauconda Police Department, Will County Sheriff’s Department, and Cook County among others. Each jurisdiction will implement their own enforcement action based upon the needs of their communities.
