Our opinion on what allegedly may have happened,
Based on the current information that has been provided to us.


 Many people are beginning to express their concerns for public safety,
Four bad wrecks and reports of zero traffic patrols

Several community members have expressed their concerns about the lack of traffic control during the daytime, in Winnebago County. Many have reported that they drive for several hours during the daytime, and never see a police squad car in Winnebago County. (taxi drivers, delivery drivers, etc…)
And how often they witness traffic laws being broken, with zero accountability.

Some of the reports said that officers witnessed the reckless driving,
But chose not to go after the drivers…
And how it is an extremely rare sight to see a traffic stop… during the daytime.

Have you drove down E State st?
Traffic flows at 60-70 MPH these days. 


In most cases, when there is an auto accident.
One party involved, more than likely did not follow the rules of the road.
Speeding, running lights, cutting people off, etc…

Many sources have said:
Many of these accidents, could have been prevented.
If police conducted traffic patrol.

Unknown if that played a factor in any of the following accidents:

  • Rollover accident in the 1000 block of  Parkside
  • 11200 block of Forest Hills
  • Bad accident at Halsted and Louise
  • Harrison and 20th st

  • Right of way is given, not taken
  • Drivers must use the right side of the road
  • Yield right of way to emergency vehicles
  • Obey the speed limit
  • Use your turn signals
  • Drivers proceed in the order they arrive at traffic stops
  • Stop for school buses dropping off children
  • Traffic proceeds counterclockwise in roundabouts

According to the MUTCD, the color of the sign tells you a lot about what it’s conveying:

  • Red is only used on stop, yield, and prohibition signs
  • White background is for regulatory signs such as speed limit signs
  • Yellow is for warning messages like an upcoming railroad crossing
  • Green indicates allowed traffic movement or directional guidance like highway exit signs
  • Orange is for construction like detours or workers ahead signs
  • Fluorescent yellow and green are for pedestrian and school crossings
  • Blue alerts drivers to upcoming services like rest areas
  • Brown indicates cultural, recreation, or tourist attractions

The sign’s shape gives you information too. Squares or vertical rectangles indicate traffic regulations like a speed limit sign, diamonds are for warnings, horizontal rectangles offer guidance, and pentagons are for school zones. Having a clear understanding of the rules of the road can help make you a safe driver.
