Law enforcement officers across the state of Wisconsin will be keeping a lookout for speeding drivers during the upcoming weeks as part of the Summer Heat initiative.
The Summer Heat program has been designed in order to target hazardous drivers, including speeders, on the roadways. By targeting these individuals, preventable fatal accidents can be avoided during the summer months in Wisconsin. The program is being funded by the Wisconsin DOT, and will be featured on local television channels featuring safety messages for drivers.
Speeding led to 160 deaths and 7,700 injuries last year in the state. Speed-related crashes tend to be more violent due to the excessive speeds that are factored into the equation. Officers are using this program, which runs between July 2 and July 18, to move the state towards zero preventable traffic deaths.
Speed-related accidents can lead to severe injuries. If you have suffered an injury due to this type of car accident, please contact the speeding accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.
