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.

  12. Hi! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog like yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal everyday.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

    Appreciate it!

    issues? Anyone that knows the answer can you kindly
    respond? Thanx!!

  14. I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the
    layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like
    this one nowadays.

  15. Aw, this was a really good post. Spending some time and actual effort
    to produce a top notch article… but what can I
    say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

  16. This is the right webpage for anybody who wants to understand this topic.

  18. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to
    get the hang of it!

  19. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I do not know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

  20. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb
    blog by the way!

  21. I have been browsing online greater than three hours today, yet I never found any fascinating article
    like yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me.
    Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably
    did, the internet will probably be much more useful than ever before.

  22. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future 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 completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
