As reckless driving incidents mount in Milwaukee, task force releases plan to fix problem

Yet reckless driving incidents continue to haunt the city. The latest plan by members of the City-County Carjacking and Reckless Driving Task Force contains strategies they believe will finally make a difference if implemented.

Among the recommendations from the task force’s final report, which was released this month: More public awareness campaigns; increased access to driver education; narrowed driving lanes; and coordinated traffic signals that allow for fewer stops.

The report also calls for increased penalties for adults caught driving recklessly while fleeing officers and for other dangerous road behaviors.
