Based on images captured by the automated traffic enforcement system, your vehicle was determined to have been used to commit a violation of the red light at the intersection of Touhy Avenue and Lincoln Avenue.
To view the images and video data, log on to Violation Info and enter the Violation Number and Personal Identification Number (PIN) located at the right of your Notice of Violation. If you do not have access to the internet at home, computers are available, at no cost, at the Lincolnwood Public Library.
If you live in Lincolnwood, you may have your appeal heard at an Administrative Hearing. Administrative Hearings are on the fourth Thursday of each month, at the Lincolnwood Village Hall, 6900 N. Lincoln Avenue, Lincolnwood, IL. A Hearing Request Form is included with the Notice of Violation. If you do not live in Lincolnwood, you may complete the attached Non-Resident Contes (PDF) by Mail form. Each completed form will be reviewed by the Administrative Hearing Officer.
The Village of Lincolnwood takes traffic safety very seriously. The fine is $100 for each violation
Violation of the Village Automated Traffic Enforcement System is a civil matter and is treated like a parking citation. The violation is not reported to the Illinois Secretary of State.
The Village allows complaints to be submitted anonymously. However, this can make it difficult for code enforcement staff to seek additional information about a complaint and to provide you with status updates regarding efforts to gain compliance.
It is preferred that contact information be provided with a complaint for the reasons noted above. The Village's policy is not to disclose the identity of a complainant to a violating property owner. However, it is important to note that a complainant's identity can become known through a request for documentation regarding a case through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Potential code violations can be reported in a number of ways:
Once a complaint is received, the code enforcement staff will investigate the complaint, determine what code violations exist (if any), and work with the violating property owner to gain compliance.
A Violation Notice is issued if code enforcement staff observes or is made aware of a potential code violation. The notice should indicate the nature of the potential violation and the staff contact person. Cooperating with code enforcement staff is the best way to determine if there is a violation, and what needs to be done to gain compliance.
The goal of code enforcement is to ensure that all properties are maintained and operated at an appropriate standard, as established by the Village Code. When properties are not maintained at an appropriate standard, it can have a detrimental impact on the quality of life of neighboring residents and businesses, property values, and the community’s overall character

Several options where considered when planning for the 2021 summer season. Overall policy decisions such as the sale of resident and non-resident season passes, as well as potential benefits and impacts of various options were thoroughly assessed over the past several months by the Parks and Recreation Department, the Parks and Recreation Board, and the Village Board. A determination on how to proceed was made with great consideration for the average number of community members that typically visit the pool on a daily basis compared to the availability of time slots, common practices and guidelines during the pandemic, and the impact of various pass type sales on the overall facility operation.
The Parks and Recreation Department greatly appreciates the continued support of residents as these plans have been developed. We are also grateful to the many families who consider our parks, camps, and aquatic center an extension of their community during the summer months. Our team is excited to serve the community through the provision of recreational swim opportunities this summer.
Season pass and time slot visit fees directly support the operation of the Aquatic Center. They help to maintain a safe, supervised, clean, and welcoming aquatic environment. The combination of pandemic-related safety/cleaning processes, the way in which the facility is designed, and the supplies needed to ensure well-maintained water does not allow for a significant decrease in staffing or supply expenses associated with operating the Aquatic Center.

Plowing generally begins when snow becomes more than two-inches deep and when freezing temperatures indicate that no melting will occur. If there is a light snowfall and the afternoon sun is melting the fallen snow, it will be left to Mother Nature to remove the snow.
Parking is prohibited along Pratt Avenue when two inches or more of snow accumulates. Cars parked on Pratt Avenue will be ticketed and towed. See additional alternate side parking restrictions above. Receive notifications when alternate side parking is in effect by signing up.
Salting is necessary to prevent melting snow from turning to ice. Once ice forms and becomes bonded to the pavement, it is very difficult to remove. Salting is typically done when the snow depth is one inch or less or if an icing condition occurs. Salting begins once the snow subsides and the salt will have time to take effect. The Public Works Department strives to use salt wisely and judiciously during any snow removal effort. Snow removal conditions will be rated using the following system:
Main streets, bridges, parking lots, and other hazardous areas mentioned by the Police Department or resident complaints must be salted. The whole town will be salted only in the case of freezing rain.
Main streets, bridges, parking lots, and other hazardous areas mentioned by the Police Department or resident complaints will be salted. The whole town will be salted only in the case of freezing rain.
Main streets, bridges, and hazardous areas will be salted. Intersections will be salted after the snow stops, depending on weather conditions.
Snow that accumulates across the side road at the street corner needs to be pushed back onto the corner. This is done to properly clear the street radius and allow cars to turn. The snowplow driver typically pushes snow back onto the corner in the direction the truck is traveling. This is why a particular corner may get more snow on it than another. It is not practical to require that the large snowplow truck attempt to maneuver around the intersection to equally distribute snow on opposite corners. This is difficult to accomplish and is also time-consuming during significant snowstorms.
Snow piled at the street corner is of particular concern where there may be school bus stops. If there is an accumulation of snow at the corner of a bus stop, children may have to move up the street in order to board the school bus. Please instruct children not to climb on the piles that have accumulated at the corners. If a snow pile on a particular corner becomes a sight distance problem at a particular intersection, please call the Public Works Department and the snow can be removed as time permits.
There are many miles of streets within the Village. Typically, the large snowplow on each route will concentrate on the major streets within each particular subdivision. Once the collector streets have been plowed, the large truck will move to the secondary streets within each subdivision. Public Works keeps route layouts logical and efficient to save fuel and salt.
Typically, dead end streets are easiest to clear and take about 10 minutes each to complete. Cul-de-sacs with the center islands take approximately 20 minutes to be cleared. Finally, cul-de-sacs that do not have islands in the center are the most time consuming, usually taking approximately 30 minutes to plow. Another factor that affects the plow's arrival in your specific area has to do with equipment failures or breakdowns. If a truck is out of service for any period of time, it adversely affects snow removal within your area.
Public Works makes every effort to reduce the potential for breakdowns; however, breakdowns still occur. It should take each truck approximately four to five hours to pass through their entire route once. If the snow is a heavy, sustained storm, the truck may have to make many passes in an effort to keep roads passable.
The Village does not maintain any roads that fall under the jurisdiction of another agency. Lincoln Avenue, Cicero Avenue, Touhy Avenue, Devon Avenue, and McCormick Avenue are maintained by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Crawford Avenue is maintained by Cook County.
Unfortunately, this is one of the consequences of owning a home in northern Illinois. Despite popular opinion, crews do not place snow in driveways on purpose. There is no practical way for the snow plow operator to cut off the windrow of snow when crossing a driveway. This problem is especially acute in cul-de-sacs because this is a very confined space. Cul-de-sacs require that all of the snow that is on the roadway within that confined space be placed along the outside of the circle. The problem is compounded by the fact that each homeowner then must clear their driveway, which places large piles on the corners of the drives.
In a cul-de-sac, it is extremely difficult to have the truck push snow onto a center island. Trucks are not built to be articulated into an angle that would allow placing a portion of the snow on the island, and centrifugal force causes the snow to move off of the plow toward the outside of the circle. Public Work's goal in clearing all streets is to maintain as much of the normal pavement width as possible, while at the same time, allowing acceptable access to the mailboxes by the postal carriers.
One thing you can do to reduce the amount of snow that is plowed in front of your driveway is to place as much of the snow as possible to the right side of your drive, as you face the street. This reduces the chance of snow previously removed from the driveway being pushed back onto your drive. This suggestion, however, may not work in cul-de-sacs that have driveway openings placed close together.
One major problem that works against snow removal operations is people shoveling or blowing snow back onto the street after it has been plowed and salted. Snow that has been deposited onto the street could refreeze and cause a hazardous condition for you or your neighbors. Please place the snow that you shovel off of your driveway and sidewalk onto the adjacent parkway and not back onto the street. When it starts to snow, park your vehicle off of the street. This protects the car from being splashed with slush and salt, prevents the car from being plowed in, or from receiving a ticket and being towed. Check that your mailbox and post are in good repair and that they are behind the curb, not leaning out over the street. If there is a fire hydrant in front of your home, please try to clear the snow around the hydrant. It is there for your protection and that of your neighbors. If you have any questions regarding our snow removal efforts, please call the Public Works at 847-675-0888. If a snow-related emergency occurs after 4:30 pm, you can call the non-emergency Police Department number at 847-673-2167.
