The 2018 "Car in Gear, Brain in Gear" accident reduction effort results in a decrease in accidents compared to 2017.

The Sheboygan Police Department initiated an educational and enforcement traffic program in 2018 called "Car in Gear, Brain in Gear".  The effort focused on educating the public on how to avoid becoming a participant in an accident while enforcement focused on connecting with those who likely will cause an accident due to their driving behavior.  The effort resulted in a 3.4% decrease in accidents compared to 2017 numbers (1736 to 1677).  Though this may appear to be a slight decrease, the educational effort along with increased enforcement did have a positive outcome.  

Traffic crash reduction efforts will continue in 2018 with the objective being a continued decrease in accidents.  Education and visible traffic enforcement will be prevalent though once again the assistance of community members, specifically drivers, is needed to make these numbers keep going down.
