West Chicago, Illinois: August 19, 2014 - A Roadside Safety Check will be conducted by the West Chicago Police Department during the month of August 2014.

Safety checks are conducted to promote the safety and well being of the motoring public and to provide a deterrent for those who might violate the Illinois Vehicle Code or West Chicago City Ordinances.

The safety check will be used to detect persons who are operating a motor vehicle with defective equipment, have no valid driver's license or permit, no proof of insurance or are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Plans have been established to conduct the check during hours which will provide the maximum opportunity for detection and apprehension of motorists who drive under the influence of alcohol or other substances.
