The Glen Ellyn Police Department frequently receives phone calls related to traffic concerns. Such complaints might be drivers who repeatedly disobey a stop sign, fail to slow down in school zones, or routinely speed at a particular location.
Each complaint will be evaluated and the appropriate manner in which to address the outlined concerns are at the Glen Ellyn Police Department’s discretion. The Department utilizes a variety of tactics to address traffic safety concerns, some of which are not always obvious to the public. The Department’s goal is to educate the public, apply appropriate enforcement and gain compliance in order to increase safety throughout our community.
All traffic signs and regulations must conform to Federal and State laws and guidelines. Any requests for the addition or modification of traffic signs may be considered if engineering judgment indicates that modification is warranted. The Village of Glen Ellyn cannot solely make the determination to install signage, and public opinion cannot dictate modifications. Additional information regarding signage can be found here.
