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. Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this
    blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.

    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
    Exceptional Blog!

  3. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog.
    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?

    A small number of my blog audience have complained about my website not
    working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

  4. Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better!

  5. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure
    of your website? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve
    got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  8. Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, wonderful blog!

  9. Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses?
    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.
