Hartford, WI – The City of Hartford, WI is working to save taxpayer money as multiple traffic lights and signals have been destroyed at a high-volume intersection near the downtown.
In an effort to keep an eye on the area after several issues of trucks and a few cars destroying private property and public lights, the City installed a new live camera near the Sumner Street/Main Street intersection.
The main purpose of this camera to look back in the event a hit and run happens at this intersection which has happened all too frequently in the past.

This is also meant to deter semis from turning down Main Street, which is no longer allowed despite what GPS might be telling drivers.
As always, if you witness someone hitting a building or traffic light or signal and running off, please take down their license plate number and contact the Hartford Police Department.
