Palatine Police Join Forces with Agencies Statewide for 2016 Illinois Speed Awareness Day Campaign
Palatine, IL – During Illinois Speed Awareness Day this July 27th, the Palatine Police Department is taking a proactive approach to promote safety for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists through both education and enforcement. In Illinois during 2014, speed was the reason for 32.4% of all traffic fatalities. That’s 348 deaths for the year, or one life every 25 hours. These lives can be easily saved by being aware of our speed and understanding how speeding impacts a crash.
