MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- 2017 ties 2015 as the deadliest year for crashes on Milwaukee streets since 2003.

The issue was brought up at a public safety and health committee meeting on Friday.

Council members along with Milwaukee Police are trying to find ways to make the streets safer.

According to an MPD Inspector, the issues start somewhere else.

"A lot of it comes down to parenting so a lot of the values that we have and expect in society start in the household so when parents don't teach their children some of the responsibilities of how to be good citizens or how to drive properly we see the end result on the streets," said MPD Inspector Jutiki Jackson.

According to the crash reports, 64 people were killed in crashes in 2017.
