Monroe Police Department to crack down on drunken motorists during the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign

 

To combat drunken driving, the Monroe Police Department will join other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin participating in the "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" national campaign from Dec. 18, 2015 to Jan.3, 2016.

 

"Although drunken driving is 100 percent preventable, on average someone is killed or injured in an alcohol-related crash in Wisconsin every three hours," says Chief Kelley. "  And while celebrating the holidays, people may be tempted to drive when they are impaired. During the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign, our officers will be out in force to arrest drunken drivers before they kill or injure themselves or an innocent victim."

 

Rather than risk a drunken driving arrest or crash, the Monroe Police Department urges you to follow these common sense suggestions:

 

  • Choose a sober designated driver before you start drinking
  • If you’re feeling buzzed, you likely are over the 0.08 BAC limit and should not drive
  • Take mass transit, a taxicab or ask a sober friend to drive you home
  • The Zero in Wisconsin traffic safety program has a free “Drive Sober” mobile app that can be downloaded by visiting zeroinwisconsin.gov
  • Some taverns and restaurants have programs to provide patrons with a safe ride home.  Visit www.tlw.org/ and click on Safe Ride
  • Report impaired drivers to law enforcement by calling 911

On December 12, 2015, at 2:34 PM, officers were dispatched to STH 11/81 and North 18th Avenue for a two vehicle crash with injuries.  Reports indicated that a vehicle operated by Harry L. Turner (86), Monticello, was leaving the stop sign on the eastbound off-ramp from STH 11/81 turning north on North 18th Avenue when it collided with a southbound vehicle on North 18th Avenue operated by a 21 year old Monroe woman.  Both drivers sustained injuries in the crash, Turner declined medical treatment and the 21 year old woman was transported to the Monroe Clinic emergency room by a private party.  Both vehicles sustained heavy damages and were towed.  Turner was cited for failure to yield right of way from a stop sign, and was released pending a court appearance.

On December 10, 2015, at 7:34 AM, officers were dispatched to the intersection of 12th Street and 23rd Avenue for a two vehicle crash with one reported minor injury.  Investigation indicated that a northbound vehicle on 23rd Avenue, operated by Patricia E. Teasdale (61), Monroe, pulled out from a stop sign into the path of a westbound vehicle on 12th Street operated by a 17 year old Monroe girl.  The 17 year old reported a minor injury.  Both vehicles sustained moderate damages and were towed.  Teasdale was cited for failure to yield right of way from a stop sign, and was released pending a court appearance.

IRS PAYMENT PHONE SCAM

 

On December 9, 2015, the Monroe Police Department was contacted by a local citizen who was on the phone with a person claiming to be an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) representative.  This person advised the complainant that the complainant was behind in taxes and needed to send cash gift cards to the caller to take care of the debt.  This is yet another in a long line of similar types of phone scams.

 

First, the IRS is a government agency that would not use a phone call to collect a payment for an alleged violation.   Nor would they use a similar type of electronic mail.  Their investigators would contact an individual to set up an appointment, at which time they would show official identification.  The person being contacted would know ahead of time about any problems with their taxes.

 

Second, no official agency would ask someone to send cash gift cards.  This is clearly suspicious.

 

Once again, the department cautions citizens not to fall victim to these scams.  If you did not enter the Swedish Lottery, you are unlikely to have won it.  It is unlikely that the Prince of Nigeria would seek you out over everyone else in the world to safeguard that country’s assets in your bank account.  If you receive a call from a relative for bail money and it doesn’t quite sound like them, call the law enforcement’s agency number that you find in phone listings, or call the Monroe Police Department and we can do this for you.  Publisher’s Clearinghouse shows up at your door with a camera crew and would not want you to pay for handling fees.

 

Unfortunately, this holiday season brings more of these types of scams, and the department recommends extra scrutiny.

The Monroe Police Department, in conjunction with the Monroe Street Department, reminds all persons that Calendar Parking regulations for the City of Monroe began at 12:01 AM on November 15, 2015 and will continue through March 31, 2016.

Persons must park on the even side of streets and avenues on even numbered dates and the odd side on odd numbered dates.  The ordinance is enforced from 12:00 AM to 7:00 AM each day.  Persons should park their vehicles at night on the side of the street or avenue that will be in effect after 12:00 AM.  A quick method to determine if you live on the odd or even side is to look at your house address number, and then park accordingly.  Citations for violation of the ordinance begin at $20.00 and increase for multiple offenses.  Nearly all areas in the City are covered by these regulations, with the exception of the Downtown Square and one-block in any direction of the Square.

The City also has areas, in the downtown and in the Smoky Row area, which are snow routes.  If there is a snowfall of more than two (2) inches, all vehicles must be removed from the street for snow removal.  These areas are marked with signs indicating the snow route area.

Finally, persons are also reminded that snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks as soon as possible following a snowfall, for safety purposes.  It is a violation of City ordinances to shovel, blow, throw or plow snow from private property into the street or onto the property of another.

 

The Police and Street Departments ask for the cooperation and patience of everyone during this upcoming season, and point out that if everyone pays attention to parking and snow removal ordinances, it is much easier to remove snow.

On September 10, 2015, the Monroe Police Department had several complaints about phone calls where the caller claimed to be representing Publisher’s Clearing House, and that the person being called had won a large cash prize.  The caller was asking for a percentage of the prize, and claimed to be in a nearby town.  None of the persons called fell for this scam, and one even suggested the caller come over, so that they could talk with a law enforcement officer.  Research has indicated that this scam is called the Jamaican scam, likely originating there.  Persons receiving these calls should be wary of any contest prize that is offered, especially if the person called has not entered the contest.  Other than being responsible for taxes on a prize that is won, there is no percentage that should be due.  Persons should not call any numbers back as this could lead to phone bills for international calls.  If the offer sounds too good to be true, it likely is.  Call your local law enforcement agency.

RESIDENTS NOT TO MOW OR DEPOSIT GRASS CLIPPINGS IN STREET

 

The Monroe Police Department is reminding residents that it is unlawful to blow or mow grass clippings or other materials into the street, and not clean them up.  This material ends up in the gutter and eventually into storm sewers.  This can cause the sewers to be blocked.  City Code 11-1-10 prohibits this activity, and violation could result in not only a citation but also could result in the Department of Public Works cleaning up the material and billing the person responsible, in addition to a citation.

 

With the yard maintenance season now upon us, a little effort to avoid grass clippings being blown into the street can go a long way to avoiding other problems later.

COMPLAINTS REGARDING DOGS IN MONROE PARKS AND CLEANING UP AFTER YOUR PET ISSUES

 

The City of Monroe annually receives numerous complaints about persons being irresponsible about handling their pets in public.

 

These complaints often lead to regulation, and the City of Monroe does, in fact, have several ordinances about responsible pet handling, all brought about from irresponsible control of pets.

 

Monroe City Code prohibits dogs from being brought into all city parks at all times, with the exception of Forest Prairie Park, which is located near the airport.  The rest of the parks have the prohibition, whether the dog is on a leash or not.  There are signs at the entrances to the parks, or in prominent locations.  It is best to not bring your pet to the park.  Unfortunately, this ordinance was caused by persons not cleaning up after their pets, and because not everyone wants to share the space with other people’s pets.

 

Monroe City Code also requires all persons to clean up after their pets immediately when in public, or if on the property of another person without their permission.  So, when you walk your dog, you are required to clean up after the dog immediately.

 

When off your property, your dog must be on a leash or be immediately under your control.  Otherwise, the dog is at large.  If tied on your property, the dog should not be able to reach the public sidewalk, so as not to make contact with pedestrians.

 

These are just some reminders that hopefully, will help to avoid complaints, and citations starting at about $180.
