Intersections represent a disproportionate share of public safety problems on roadways. In fact, motorists are more likely to be injured in urban crashes involving red light running than in any other type of motor vehicle accident. Unlike collisions in which drivers have no control of the outcome, those caused by red light running can be prevented.
The City of Hometown in partnership with the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) is committed to increasing roadway safety, especially at intersections. A red light enforcement system will be installed at the intersection of 87th Street at IL 50 (Cicero Avenue) monitoring northbound traffic. Due to significant traffic congestion at this location, we are confident that this enforcement system will make a life-saving difference.
In order to educate and inform the community about this important safety initiative, we are launching a public awareness campaign, "Be Safe: Stop on Red." Remember, lives depend on it!
