Rock Island, IL– As millions of travelers hit the road for summer vacations, Rock Island Police Department is joining with the Illinois Department of Transportation and Illinois State Police to urge motorists to stop speeding
and help ensure everyone reaches their destinations safely.
“Over the past few years, we have seen an increase in careless and risky driving. No matter how safe of a driver you think you may be, speeding is dangerous,” said Chief Richard Landi. “Speed limits aren’t a suggestion – they are the law.”
Drivers can expect a ticket from Rock Island Police if they are spotted speeding. Stepped-up patrols will be seen throughout City of Rock Island and the state August 1st – 13th.
The speed enforcement effort is made possible by federal traffic safety funds administered by IDOT.
