Throughout the month of September, Ashwaubenon Public Safety, the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, Green Bay Police Department, and the Wisconsin State Patrol will be focusing on a coordinated traffic safety mission to reduce intentional acts of reckless driving across Brown County.
Law enforcement will be monitoring for excessive speeding, impaired driving, street racing, seatbelt violations and any additional illegal and dangerous behavior that could result in injury or death to the driver or others.
“Reckless driving and excessive speed puts everyone at risk. The decisions you make as a driver can have irrevocable impacts on you, other road users, their families, and our whole community. Too often, our officers have to deliver terrible news to a family that has suffered irrecoverable loss as a result of dangerous driving behavior,” Chief Chris Davis, Green Bay Police Department.”
“We aren’t immune from the nationwide problems of speeding and reckless driving here in the Green Bay area,” said Mayor Eric Genrich, City of Green Bay. “Thankfully the Green Bay Police Department is working every day to crack down on this dangerous behavior, and with the assistance of our regional and statewide law enforcement partners, their positive impact will be even greater in the weeks ahead.”
This initiative will be funded with grant assistance from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
