MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – A Milwaukee alderman joins the growing list of leaders worried about traffic safety in Milwaukee.
Alderman Bob Bauman was at work Wednesday when a woman was hit and killed while walking near City Hall.
While the exact circumstances of this tragedy are unclear, he says speed is a serious problem downtown and he’d support speed humps, roundabouts, or other methods of slowing drivers down.
“The rules of the road are suggestions nowadays to most people. And the city has to get its arms around it. To some extent, I blame the former Chief of Police, ‘cause he just stopped enforcing the traffic laws and people responded to that by ignoring the traffic laws. And speed kills people,” said Ald. Bauman.
Wednesday’s victim has been identified as 64-year-old Patricia El Borki El Idrissi.
The driver who hit her is cooperating with police.
