Speeding is a problem that plagues many communities including Hanover Park. As such, the Police Department works closely with the community to educate drivers and enforce speed laws in many areas of town. The police use a variety of enforcement techniques that include use of the speed trailer and selective enforcement by the patrol division. The Village of Hanover Park has posted speed limits that range from 15 to 45 miles per hour. These speeds are based on Traffic Engineering Surveys that take into consideration the roadway conditions, accident records, and the speed of drivers.
Drivers are required to know to drive at a safe speed; as defined by the Illinois Vehicle Code. In Hanover Park, the speed limit on all residential streets is 20 miles per hour. Questions should be directed to the Strategic Enforcement and Prevention Unit at 630-823-5481.
