On Friday, 6/26, Officers from the Madison Police Department conducted an enhanced enforcement project on E Washington Ave focussing on OWI and other hazardous driving behaviors.
From 9:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. officers conducted a total of 13 stops for speeding. The high speed stopped was for 88 MPH in a 55 MPH zone, with all vehicles stopped for going at least 15 MPH over the limit. One vehicle's speed was measured at 109 MPH but officers were unable to safely catch up to the vehicle in question.
Please slow down and drive sober. Tragically, just minutes after this project was completed a fatal vehicle vs pedestrian crash occurred on a separate section of E Washington Ave. That crash resulted in the 6th fatality on Madison streets so far in 2021.
