"Click It or Ticket"
The Palatine Police Department is dedicated to keeping our roadways safe through aggressive traffic enforcement measures. With federal highway safety funds administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation, we are participating in the Labor Day “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” Traffic Safety Crackdown. The high-visibility “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown runs from Aug. 22nd through Sept. 6th. During this period, law enforcement across Illinois will show zero tolerance for impaired driving and seat belt law violators. Increased state and national messaging about the dangers of drunk and drugged driving coupled with roadside safety checks and increased officers on the road aim to reduce impaired driving in Palatine and Illinois.

Residents Can Now Report Concerns Regarding O'Hare Runway Noise
The O’Hare Noise Compatibility Commission (ONCC) recently implemented a Fly Quiet Runway Rotation Plan, which will test out a weekly runway rotation program during overnight hours in an attempt to achieve a more balanced distribution of jet noise exposure for Chicago and other highly impacted communities that surround O’Hare. This plan was implemented despite strong opposition by the Village of Palatine as well as Arlington Heights, Des Plaines, Rolling Meadows, and Hoffman Estates.
The ONCC has established a system for tracking concerns and other feedback related to the Fly Quiet Plan which can be accessed through the following link:
