Safe Communities for Illinois (SCIL) is a data driven initiative designed to aid local communities in developing creative and comprehensive public education programs to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities in communities where there is lower seat belt usage and higher rates of motor vehicle related fatalities than the average traffic fatality rates. This initiative is designed to save lives and reduce injuries by building collaboration between state, county, and local community partners. SCILís goal is to increase safety belt usage rates among those in at risk communities in order to lower the number of motor vehicle fatalities, reduce the number of motor vehicle injuries and deaths, and increase the awareness of the Division of Transportation Safety and its traffic safety programs.

If your goal is to save lives and reduce injuries on Illinois roadways, we encourage you to become a partner with the Safe Communities for Illinois program. For more information, please contact us at or visit us at
