Incoming increase to traffic enforcement

Citizens of Beardstown:
    This is a notice to any person driving within the city limits of Beardstown. You as a driver can expect to see an increase in traffic enforcement around your local community. It has been brought to my attention that numerous violations are occurring more and more each day. For your safety and for the safety of others on the city streets, I strongly urge you to start and/or continue to abide to all Illinois Vehicle Code statutes. If you are unaware of the statutes, you may look them up on the Illinois General Assembly website: http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/ilcs/ilcs3.asp?ChapterID=49&ActID=1815.
    We at the Beardstown Police Department are here to keep our community a safer place to live. We do not write the laws that are in effect, we merely enforce those laws to the best of our ability.
Dustin Clark
Chief of Police
