We want to encourage safe driving over the Labor Day weekend.
Locally, drivers age 20-25 years old have consistently had higher rates of traffic collisions than other age groups.
We have seen an increase in injury accidents involving the following factors:
- Seatbelts not being worn
- Inattentive driving (cell phone usage, eating)
- Following too closely
There will be increased law enforcement presence and additional emphasis on promoting traffic safety over the holiday weekend commencing September 3rd-6th, 2010.
