Governor’s Conference on Highway Safety

Due to the public health situation and with participant safety uppermost in mind, the 46th annual Governor’s Conference on Highway Safety - initially scheduled for August of 2020 in Wisconsin Dells - has been cancelled.

Upcoming national mobilizations

  • December 18 - January 1, 2021 (Drive Sober- Winter)
  • May 24 – June 6, 2021 (Click It or Ticket National Mobilization)
  • August 20 – September 6, 2021 (Drive Sober – Labor Day)

All agencies are encouraged to participate and submit your enforcement activity. Mobilization Activity reports are available and must be activated by agreeing to the terms of the report. The reports are available about a month before the mobilization and are located under the “View Available Opportunities” button on the home screen of WISE-Grant.

Annual 2021 Traffic Safety Grant Training

All agencies receiving a grant from the WisDOT Bureau of Transportation Safety are required to take ​Traffic Safety Grant Training.

Crash Database

As of January 2021, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is no longer accepting the MV4002 paper Driver Report of Crash forms. WisDOT is asking law enforcement agencies to update their websites to reflect the change in reporting. The online application, instructional information and printable cards for agencies to distribute are available on the WisDOT website. Law enforcement agencies should also direct the public to the Wisconsin Interactive Network (WIN) website to purchase a crash report using the DOT document number, not their agency case number. Also, there is a driver exchange document generated in TraCS that provides each party with information that should be used in lieu of handwritten documentation.
