Traffic Enforcement Safety Team

The Traffic Enforcement Safety Team's mission is to increase public safety on the streets and highways of the City of Madison. Through the use of both enforcement and education, TEST addresses dangerous behaviors that compromise traffic safety.

Each police district has a TEST liaison who identifies enforcement needs of the district and works with district personnel in developing traffic safety initiatives. TEST also responds to citizen complaints about problem areas in need of increased/focused traffic enforcement.
