Wisconsin Bills to Protect First Responders, Highway Workers

Bills in the state assembly and senate to protect road workers were created after seven first responders have died in roadside crashes, reports Fox 11 News.

People who commit traffic violations by first responders, tow truck drivers and maintenance workers can face up to 9 months in prison.

The bills say wireless telephone use near workers isn’t allowed. First responders could also temporarily lower speed limits while working.
