and want to remind everyone during about 30% of all traffic crash fatalities in the United States involve drunk drivers (with BACs of .08 g/dL or higher). In 2020, there were 11,654 people killed in these preventable crashes. In fact, on average over the 10-year period from 2011-2020, about 10,500 people died every year in drunk-driving crashes.

In every state, it’s illegal to drive drunk, yet one person was killed in a drunk-driving crash every 45 minutes in the United States in 2020.

The consequences of drunk driving are always there, following you like a wave, ready to crash at any moment. Whether it’s getting a DUI, your insurance going...

With the Bucks game I understand it's hard to respond to such calls but we need to start cracking down on the atvs and motocross bikes and mini bikes on the side walks and the streets they don't care about people or traffic or there own safety

however I did report it hope you catch them but I called to many Bucks fans on side walks and someone will get hit.

but there a danger to law abiding citizens but hard to catch tickets help but we gotta start also taking these illegal vechiles

We are only gonna get rid of this stuff if we report it to you and hope you guys catch them
There reckless
Dear Police Officers of Milwaukee,
Friday 4/23, one of my most dedicated and reliable young workers – an 18 year old black kid- was roughed up on the way to work by a Milwaukee police officer on the pretext that he failed to use a turn signal- or his window was too dark- ultimately he was not ticketed. A ticket would have identified the officer: he wasn’t wearing a body camera and did not introduce himself. He pulled this kid over in a big unmarked SUV and dragged him out of the car with a taser to his head. He forced him to lay in the dirty street face down.
I am so incredibly angry. “J” was driving a hand me down car he fixed up with his own money, earned by doing dishes. He is going to be a Nurse. He is respectful, kind, has a great family and knows how to behave. This cop on the other hand clearly knows he can get away with this sort of behavior even with the eyes of the country focused on police brutality. And he IS getting away with it. “J” isn’t going to file a report- that would be inviting retaliation. What can I do? All I can think of is write this open letter to the good officers on the force. I hope you will be as outraged by this bad apple as I am and try to step up to stop this kind of bullying in our city.
Thank you.
I would say the first thing you need to do is enforce the license plate law. So many cars with no tags, how can anyone report them?
