Stop Test Arrest

High Visibility Enforcement (HVE); the motto of the task force is “Stop, Test & Arrest” all suspected impaired drivers. However, the true mission is to prevent the behavior of drinking and driving from occurring in the first place. Thanks to the outdoor advertising we have with Lamar Advertising, we are able to educate the motoring public on the danger of impaired driving and the extreme risk of being arrested due to the increased enforcement by the Southeast WI Multi-Jurisdictional High Visibility O.W.I. Task Force.

A critical part of reducing impaired driving is the public awareness necessary to change behaviors.
