MANITOWOC The Manitowoc Police Department will crack down on speeders in the city of Manitowoc Feb. 14 and 15, according to a news release from the department.

According to the release:

Extra officers will be deployed on those two days to patrol for speeding, aggressive driving, seatbelt use and other traffic violations.
