Traffic Enforcement & Safety Blotter

Speed & Seatbelt Enforcement - E Washington Ave

August 2, 2021 2:45 PM

On Thursday, 7/29/21, Officers from the Madison Police Department conducted an enhanced enforcement project on E Washington Ave, near the intersection with Ingersoll St.  During the project officers focused on speeding and other hazardous driving behaviors.

During just two hours of enforcement officers stopped 13 vehicles, all of which were traveling at least 15 MPH over the posted speed limit (25 MPH).  The highest speed stopped was for traveling 53 MPH.

Please slow down, traveling 25 MPH not only reduces injuries but makes crashes much less likely to occur in the first place.

These additional enforcement efforts are made possible through traffic overtime grants provided by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, and conducted in partnership with the Dane County Sheriff's Office.
