Police Department IDOT Traffic Safety Equipment Grant
The Park Ridge Police Department recently received an Illinois Department of Transportation Grant for $1000.00 to be used for traffic safety equipment. One of the items acquired are flashing red lights which can be affixed to stop signs to enhance the visibility and awareness of the presence of stop signs at intersections and to aid in compliance and safety for motorists and pedestrians. These lights are moveable and will be utilized at intersections where a higher volume of violations and traffic crashes have been recorded. The lights are currently on stop signs at the intersection of Western and Peterson and the intersection of Cedar and Clifton. These lights are part of the Department’s ongoing efforts to enhance traffic safety throughout the community.
