Summer Heat, a mobilization process involving officers from 120 different law enforcement agencies in the state of Wisconsin, will run from July 2 to July 18, and will target speeders on Wisconsin roadways.
The enforcement agencies participating in this initiative were given funding by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Transportation Safety. The goal of the program is to reprimand speeding drivers, and in turn reduce the number of car accidents that are directly related to this type of hazardous driving.
Car accidents tend to be more violent when high speeds are involved. Speed-related crashes caused 160 deaths last year in Wisconsin, and an additional 7,700 injuries. Officers will be watching for these violators during the Summer Heat program, and will be citing them appropriately.
