Reckless driving in Milwaukee is an epidemic. Emergency responders are getting hurt – and the wounds are more than physical. "People are screaming and crying and yelling at you to move faster, things like that," said Milwaukee Fire Captain A.J. Hornik. A group of Milwaukee firefighters recently trained for what has become a serious problem in the city. "Just based on the run volume, the amount of times we have to use what we train for to remove people from vehicles, it definitely feels to me, we’re using a lot of resources for sure to deal with it," Hornik said. Dealing with what exactly? Reckless driving. The MFD captain is the first to respond to those scenes. "I’m kind of a step back and oversee," Hornik said. As Hornik's team stays mission focused, they are hit with reality. Reckless driving is out of control.
