Traffic Enforcement & Safety Blotter

Speed & Seatbelt Enforcement - University Ave

March 19, 2021 10:51 AM

Yesterday, 3/18/2021, the Madison PD conducted an enhanced traffic enforcement project on University Ave focusing on seatbelt use.

Over the course of project officers conducted a total of 27 stops, 23 of which were for seatbelt violations.

According to NHTSA: One of the safest choices drivers and passengers can make is to buckle up. Many Americans understand the lifesaving value of the seat belt – the national use rate was at 90.7% in 2019.

Please slow down and buckle-up.

These additional enforcement efforts are made possible through traffic overtime grants provided by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation
