Brown County Drivers Have 89% Compliance Rate in First 2024 Frogger

Wello’s Yield to Your Neighbor campaign conducted a countywide Crosswalk Education and Enforcement or “Frogger” event on Thursday, June 27, 2024 in partnership with local law enforcement. These pedestrian safety efforts were held at various locations in Ashwaubenon, Allouez, Bellevue, Denmark, De Pere, Hobart, Howard, Green Bay, Pulaski and Suamico.

Law enforcement partners include Ashwaubenon Public Safety, Brown County Sheriff’s Office, De Pere Police, Green Bay Police, Hobart-Lawrence Police, and Pulaski Police. Vehicles were stopped for failing to follow the law of yielding to pedestrians, state statute 346.24 (1), which resulted in warnings and/or tickets at the officer’s discretion.

“Our vigilance for pedestrian safety keeps our community moving forward, one safe step at a time,” said Capt. John Rousseau, Division Director - Patrol for the Brown County Sheriff’s Office. “Our participation in Frogger is another reminder to the motoring public that we share the roads with pedestrians, bicyclists, and others. Our goal is not to issue traffic citations, rather we want everyone on Brown County roadways to be as safe as possible."

Here are the combined results from all locations for the first “Frogger” event on 6/27/24. 

Number of Departments - 6

Number of Municipalities Covered - 10

Number of Frogger Locations - 13

Warnings Issued - 111

The last two events for this year will take place on Thursday, August 22 and Wednesday, October 2.
