Are police officers exempt from wearing their seat belts?

The question we pose to our blog readers this week is this: are police officers exempt from wearing their seat belts? For a majority of the people in Wisconsin, the answer to this question is unequivocally no. Everyone is required to wear a seat belt while operating a motor vehicle and police should be no exception to this rule. After all, aren't they supposed to be the role models of good behavior that we are supposed to emulate?

Looking both ways, it's not just for kids anymore

Nearly everyone in Wisconsin was told at least once when they were a kid that you should always look both ways before crossing the street. It seems to be one of the more common sense things that our parents taught us in our youths but with more and more people getting injured or killed due to auto-pedestrian accidents, it would seem that adults may need a refresher course.

Wisconsin police officer critically injured in car accident

Wisconsin police officers assume a certain amount of risk while on duty. They know that the possibility of being injured or killed is very real every time they go on a call. In fact, it's typically just part of the job. But what about when they are off duty? Unfortunately, police officers are just as likely to be involved in a car accident off duty as anyone else.

Wisconsin parish loses beloved priest in bicycle accident

Most people who ride bicycles enjoy breathing the fresh Wisconsin air and admiring the scenery. Of course, riding a bicycle is also good exercise, but for some, that is just an added benefit. One obvious difficulty with riding a bicycle is having to share the streets with other vehicles. Bicyclists are vulnerable to being involved in a bicycle accident just like any other vehicle on the road.

Wisconsin man left to die in hit and run car accident

Wisconsin drivers typically do their best to obey the traffic laws and be considerate to others on the road. When most drivers are involved in an accident, they are considerate enough to stop, especially if someone may be hurt. In fact, the law requires them to do so. Unfortunately, there are those who flee the scene of a car accident, not even stopping to make sure that no one is hurt. Finding a hit-and-run driver can be time consuming and challenging for authorities.

Wisconsin sees an increase in car accident deaths from last year

Wisconsin has seen an increase in fatalities due to car accidents from this time last year. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, 333 people have died in connection with a car accident. That's 44 more than this time last year.

Wisconsin boat accident spawns at least 3 wrongful death lawsuits

Most everyone in Wisconsin knows about the dangers and consequences of drinking and driving. But when they think of drunk driving cases, they normally imagine a car, truck or motorcycle being involved. But operating other vehicles under the influence of drugs or alcohol can also lead to criminal charges, as well as a wrongful death civil lawsuit when a fatality is caused. Driving a boat while drunk or high, or both, can certainly lead to disastrous consequences.
