We wish for you a safe and happy holiday.
In 2010, there were 12,256 crashes at intersections in Ohio during the shopping season – 4,329 people were injured and 33 people were killed. Most crashes were angle and rear-end collisions, often caused by motorists following too close to other vehicles or misjudging the gap in traffic when turning at an intersection or driveway.
Please be extra cautious as you travel and work. To provide a margin of safety, fully stop at all intersection even if the signal light is green for your direction of travel. Remember that others may not hear your sirens or horns until you are in very close proximity. Park and work with safety in mind at scenes, especially those on or near high-speed roadways. We want you around to enjoy time with your family and friends.
