Mukwonago Police step-up enforcement in preparation for St. Patrick's Day

 To combat drunken driving and increase safety belt use, the Village and Town of Mukwonago Police Departments will intensify their traffic safety enforcement efforts during the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period from March 4 through March 20th.

The increased enforcement is part of  financial grants that the Village and Town of Mukwonago Police Departments received from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Bureau of Transportation Safety.

“Our intensified traffic safety enforcement during St. Patrick’s Day holiday period and throughout this year will help prevent motorists from killing and injuring themselves and others on our roadways.  We’re striving to increase voluntary compliance with traffic safety laws; not to write more seat belt tickets or make more drunken driving arrests,” says Lieutenant Ken Pileggi.

 Some simple steps for a safe St. Patrick’s Day:

·         Plan a safe way home before the festivities begin

·         Before drinking, designate a sober drive and leave your car keys at home

·         If you are impaired, call a taxi, friend or family member to get you home

·         If you know somebody who is impaired and about to drive, take their keys and help them to make other arrangements to get where they are going safely

If you see a drunk driver on the road, the police department encourages you to call Mukwonago PD (262) 363-6425 or your local police using 911 on a cellphone.
