Community Reminder

Oak Lawn and surrounding communities have seen a surge in burglary to autos recently. 95% of those reported in Oak Lawn have been to unlocked vehicles where change, computers and easily carried away items are left in vehicles. Please remember to lock your vehicles and if you are leaving the vehicle outside remember to take your garage remote with you. Report suspicious subjects to police. Follow Oak Lawn PD on Twitter at @Oaklawnpd for community and traffic alerts.

The Village of Oak Lawn has maintained a Red Light Enforcement Program since 2008. The Red light Cameras are located in the Following Locations:

95th St at Ridgeland Ave - Westbound

95th St at Cicero Ave - Eastbound

Cicero Ave at 95th St – Northbound

Southwest Hwy at 97th St  – Northeast bound

Pulaski Rd at 95th St - Southbound

111th St at Cicero Ave - Eastbound

111th St at Cicero Ave - Westbound

These cameras will memorialize violations where motorists proceed through an intersection while the light is red.  These cameras will also capture motorists that do not follow the Law as it pertains to “Right Turn On Red” situations.  The following is taken directly from the Rules of the Road Publication issued by the State of Illinois (https://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/publications/pdf_publications/dsd_a112.pdf)

Red light — Stop at the marked stop line. If there is not a marked stop line, stop before entering the crosswalk. If there is no crosswalk, stop before entering the intersection. Do not go until the light is green and the intersection is clear. You may make a right turn at a red light (unless posted otherwise) . You also may make a left turn at a red light when turning from a one-way street onto another one-way street that has traffic moving to the left. In both instances, drivers must come to a complete stop and yield the right-of-way to oncoming traffic and pedestrians before turning.

Motorists should always follow safe driving practices, not just when Red Light Cameras are present.  Please click the links to the Question and Answer” and “Myths VS Facts” informational handbills to familiarize yourself with this information and help provide a safe and violation free motoring experience.
