MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - 14 drunk drivers and 4 drug suspects were among those caught in an aggressive law enforcement effort in Wisconsin.
That's what the DOT said Thursday about the national I-90-94 Challenge.
16 states boosted their patrols last weekend on the two Interstates, in the hopes of recording no traffic deaths on the coast to coast highways from Friday through Monday.
One death was reported along the route. An SUV rolled over in Montana, killing one person and injuring 9. Authorities said most of those victims were not wearing seat belts.
The Wisconsin State Patrol issued its preliminary figures Thursday. Over 1,600 vehicles were stopped on I-90 and 94 during the four-day campaign from Kenosha to Hudson.
Just under 3,000 people received written warnings and citations. There were 71 violations of seat beat and child safety seat requirements.
