"The sheriff’s office is fully staffed, trained and equipped to aggressively target reckless drivers – both on county roads and in every Racine County municipality.  There are far too many incidents of completely irresponsible drivers putting our citizens at risk of serious injury or death. This dangerous behavior will not be tolerated. If you drive recklessly, a deputy will stop you, arrest you, and take you to jail."
