The Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Office says almost 75% of people it catches for speeding are from other counties.
That is backed up by data obtained by the Wisconsin State Journal.
Sheriff's Office Captain, Ryan Waldschmidt, said, “We don’t have to hide behind signs, we don’t have to hide behind trees or bushes or anything like that. We’ll run radar in plain sight.”
Waldschmidt said deputies typically aren't stopping people going five to 10 miles over the speed limit. "We're looking for the high fliers.", he said.
Waldschmidt said 75% of the speeding tickets issued were given to people speeding by at least 15 miles per hour.
Waldschmidt gave advice to drivers, and said, "It's just safe to say don't speed in Fond du Lac County."
