Line of sight ordinance

​The Village of Lincolnwood, in an effort to reduce vehicular accidents
and provide safer driving conditions within the Village, collected data
for a line of sight ordinance. This ordinance targets areas where
landscaping blocks the view of drivers turning to and from arterial
roadways to residential streets. In order to accomplish this, GIS was
used to provide the total number of intersections and to map data
previously collected data such as intersections with a line of sight
conflict as well as vehicular accidents at these locations. Data was
gathered directly from Public Works staff as well as from the Village’s
Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD). GIS was then able to summarize this
information quickly and accurately. This work assisted community staff
members in the writing and passing of a Village ordinance to restrict
the amount of obstructions.​
