Wisconsin Police Deploying ‘Aerial Support’ This Week to Crack Down on Traffic Violators
Madison, WI – Wisconsin police are taking to the air once again this week to crack down on traffic violators along numerous interstates and highways.
In an announcement on social media, the Wisconsin State Patrol (WSP) said it will be ramping up enforcement on all drivers who engage in behaviors such as aggressive driving, speeding, and other driving violations.
WSP will be deploying both cruisers and aerial support units throughout eight counties (weather permitting) along US-53, I-41, I-39, I-94, and US-41/141.
Below are the dates and corresponding locations of this week’s campaign:
Monday, August 9
Barron County (US-53)
Tuesday, August 10
Washington County (I-41)
Wednesday, August 11
Dane County (I-39/90)
Thursday, August 12
Waushara County (I-39)
Eau Claire County (I-94)
Friday, August 13
Douglas County (US-53)
Saturday, August 14
Dunn County (I-94)
Sunday, August 15
Oconto County (US-41/141)
Last month, WSP conducted a similar four-day enforcement detail.
WSP said 36 traffic stops were made during one such detail on Interstate 43 in Walworth County, resulting in one motorist being cited for speeding at 105 mph.
“Our goal is voluntary compliance with traffic laws,” WSP stated. “Speeders risk more than a citation- they risk the safety of others.”
