FOX47 NEWS - Drive Smart
Law enforcement from across Dane County - Middleton to Cottage Grove - will be keeping a couple extra eyes on drivers on the beltline this summer.
It's part of what's called the Drive Smart Campaign.
The Dane County Sheriff's Department recieved a $50,000 grant from the Department of Transportation which will be used to add more officers onto the beltline.
Rather than not having it- because they are concentrated on other efforts, they can dedicate specific efforts to traffic enforcement, says Sheriff David Mahoney.
Dane County already has a six person traffic team.
The smart drive program kicks off this Saturday and runs through September.
