Law Enforcement sets out to curb dangerous driving
Local law enforcement will be out this week and during the summer in an effort to combat dangerous and aggressive motorists. Milwaukee police chief Alfonso Morales stated “you will be noticing it!” The police chief was joined at a press conference with Mayor Tom Barrett, Milwaukee County acting Sheriff, Richard Schmidt, and Major Anthony Burrell, from the Wisconsin State Patrol.
There has been a steady increase in hit and run crashes every year since 2013, and those crashes account for a larger share of total crashes in the city of Milwaukee. According to a study conducted by AAA foundation, a hit and run crash takes place every minute in the United States, which has resulted in some 2,049 fatalities in 2016, the highest number on record and represents a 60% increase since 2009.
There will be increased patrols out on the roadways on certain traffic “hot spots” in the city of Milwaukee in an attempt to crack down on dangerous drivers.
