Member News: Westward Industries Brings EV Enforcement Fleet to Milwaukee
The City of Milwaukee, WI recently enhanced its parking enforcement program with the addition of four electric parking enforcement vehicles. The latest in a series of initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability in City programs, these vehicles will reduce the amount of fuel used in parking enforcement (which last year burned approximately 1,100 gallons), as well as save the City $10,000 in fuel costs per year.
The GO-4 EV parking enforcement vehicles are part of a series of vehicles developed by Westward Industries. The three-wheeled vehicles not only provide a sustainable alternative to standard sized vehicles often used for enforcement, but they are also easier for officers to enter and exit, as well as maneuver throughout their routes in a safe and efficient manner. According to Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, “The city wants to have less of a carbon footprint, less of a physical footprint and less physical wear and tear for our operators. That we accomplish with these new electric vehicles.”
The GO-4 series of vehicles includes the original GO-4, the GO-4 EV, the GO-4 flatbed, and the GO-4 Van Body. They operate in cities throughout North America including Santa Monica, CA, Portland, OR, Scarsdale, NY, and Aspen, CO.
