Fairfield County re-introduces road safety program

Sometimes accidents are unavoidable. But motor vehicle crashes are especially tragic when they could have been prevented by better driver behavior or more education in the area of traffic safety. An Ohio county is hoping to decrease the number of serious preventable crashes by re-instituting a program aimed at preventing them.

The Fairfield County Sheriff's Office is re-introducing a traffic safety initiative called the Safe Communities Program, effective Oct. 1. This is made possible by a $50,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Public Safety/Office of Criminal Justice Services' Traffic Safety Division.

The program is designed to target specific risk factors that are to tied to higher accident and fatality rates. In Fairfield County, the program will focus on teen driving safety and traffic safety. Other areas of focus include:

  • Seat belt safety
  • Driving under the influence
  • Motorcycle safety

Specifically, the grant will be used to fund staffing, promotional and marketing materials, education and programming, all aimed at educating the community on certain traffic dangers. Some of the money will go toward a billboard campaign educating drivers about the dangers of distracted driving and the importance of seat belts. Funding will also increase law enforcement presence on the roads on holidays. Officials hope to see results in the first 90 days.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by someone else's negligence it is important to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney who may be able to help you pursue justice and get your life back on track.
