Traffic Safety

Since 2004, the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with the Illinois Department of Transportation – Division of Traffic Safety to reduce the number of residents seriously injured or killed in traffic crashes.

 

Through focused efforts in enforcing speed, seat belt, and DUI laws the number of crashes, injuries, and fatalities has dropped significantly.  Below are some crash-related statistics from the Illinois Department of Transportation:
