Safe Communities of Wood County February 2019 Press Release

Safe Communities announced today that there have been zero fatal crashes in Wood County this year compared to zero at this time last year.  Let’s keep this trend going!

Rear-end and fixed object crashes are the major causes of crashes in Wood County.  Common factors that contribute to these type of collisions include:

  • Aggressive or reckless driving.
  • Texting and driving.
  • Speeding.
  • Driver fatigue.
  • Tailgating.
  • Negligence while driving through intersections, parking lots, and highway ramps.
  • Failure to follow the rules of the road.

You can prevent these crashes by remembering these simple rules:

  • Look further up the road to spot traffic stopping long before the vehicle in front of you slams on its brakes.
  • Stay focused on your driving
  • Leave 2-3 vehicle lengths between you and the car in front of you
  • Do not drive in excess of the speed limit
  • Do not drive drowsy or impaired
  • If there is poor visibility, be cautious and drive within your abilities.

Let’s strive for zero fatal crashes in 2019.

  1. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that
    you ought to publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo subject
    but usually folks don’t speak about such issues. To the next!

    Many thanks!!

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your blog.

    You have some really good posts and I believe I would be a good
    asset. If you ever want to take some of the load
    off, I’d really like to write some articles
    for your blog in exchange for a link back to
    mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
    Regards!

  3. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and
    style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
