Fatal Review Committee Wraps Fiscal Year with Discussion on Traffic Fatality Rates

As the federal fiscal year comes to a close for the Safe Communities of Pickaway County program, the Fatal Review Committee went over one fatality for the final quarter of the year. The Committee discussed what areas of the county are the most dangerous for crashes and fatalities, and made recommendations for what members can do to limit the number of deaths on area roadways.

Fatalities for the calendar year 2014 are actually down from last year. According to statistics, deaths on local roadways are down by 6 county-wide. In the state of Ohio, fatalities are down by 80 from last year. Although this completes the fiscal year on an optimistic note, Safe Communities Director Teresa C. Carper warns that this is not a reason to not take safety seriously. “September in Ohio brings a cause for concern for those of us that promotes traffic safety”, she explained to the members of the committee. “Although there are no concrete reasons, September has historically been a month that fatalities rise across the state. It tells us to make sure we follow traffic safety recommendations every time we get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.”

The Committee also discussed plans to add new members, and proactively make recommendations for changes that would possibly reduce the number of crashes and deaths on roadways in Pickaway County. The Committee noted that some safety measures could be taken to reduce the severity of crashes, and that US 23 needs to be an area of priority for enforcement.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides funds that support the local Safe Communities program, and the High Visibility Enforcement Overtime grant held by the Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office. NHTSA has a website with safety information for organizations and individuals at www.nhtsa.gov .

Change Is Not Always A Good Thing!

A Change of Seasons Can Increase Chances of Crashes and Fatalities

Beware of September! This phrase notes that statistically, this time of year increases the number of crashes and fatalities in Ohio. Even in Pickaway County, September has been a month in the past where crashes and fatalities have increased. There can be many reasons for this trend: the change of season decreases the hours of light and visibility, the increase in deer related crashes, changes in weather, and school related travel and traffic. In a few short weeks, we will end daylight savings time. Changing our routines, and ourselves to adjust to this time change, often creates issues when it comes to being alert behind the wheel. In Pickaway County, we are coming into a time of year where we will see an increase in traffic due to the pending Circleville Pumpkin Show. All of these examples give good reason why safe driving practices should become a priority each and every time we travel in a motor vehicle.

Signed into law this past year, and a law that can be found in the Ohio Revised Code, is the designation that September is “Safe Driving Awareness Month”. The designation is in honor of Maria Tiberi and others who have lost their lives in motor vehicle related incidents. Safe Communities of Pickaway County asks that all Pickaway County drivers remember these individuals, and drive safe every month of the year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has a website with information on traffic safety issues, suggestions for parents and teens, and other traffic safety related items. Visit their website at www.nhtsa.gov to review this information, and make a pledge to make a “good” change and develop safe driving habits every time you drive.

Safe Communities Wraps Up Fiscal Year with Progress Report

The Safe Communities of Pickaway County Coalition met this week to discuss the end to the fiscal year for the program, and preview plans to continue traffic safety in Pickaway County. Members were presented a report with an outline of the goals met and areas where improvement in traffic safety is needed. According to statistics provided in April 2013, this year the organization was to focus on seat belt safety, impaired driving issues, motorcycle safety awareness, and work to create partnerships throughout the community to promote public awareness of motor vehicle safety. The program reviews fatalities on local highways and roadways quarterly, and makes recommendations on how to prevent future crashes, injuries, and fatalities. These reviews, along with data provided by a variety of sources, helps to determine what each program is to focus on in regards to programming. In Pickaway County, younger drivers, impaired driving, and motorcycle safety were all a priority of the 2013-2014 fiscal year.

A major goal over the past five years did improve last year. The program was to meet the goal of 73% use rate for seat belts, and a survey conducted by Miami University last year shows that the county actually improved to 84.3%. These numbers reflect the use rate as of June 2013. In recent surveys and statistical data, there is a concern that this use rate may decrease next fiscal year. Seat belt use and the promotion of this safety message will remain a focus for the 2014-2015 fiscal year. The teen program has remained a priority throughout the tenure of the program, and with the issue of distracted driving being a national topic of concern, younger driver safety will continue to be a focus for the future.

Teresa C. Carper, Director for the local program noted how grateful she is to the partners within the Pickaway County community. “It should be noted how fortunate this program is to have our law enforcement, local schools, media, businesses like Walmart and Fletcher’s Towing, and community members who help us make this program work”, she noted today. “In speaking with many agencies across the state, some programs struggle to get community members and leaders involved in the process. In Pickaway County, this has never been an issue, and we are grateful for the support.”

Although the Coalition was made aware of the future plans for the program, as well as future funding, an official announcement will come after October 1, 2014 when the new federal fiscal year begins for these grants in Ohio. The Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office has held the program for over four years, and has applied for a grant for 2014-2015. Safe Community programs nationwide were created to promote public awareness and education to communities that have a significant number of fatalities as a result of motor vehicle crashes. Funding for the programs comes from the National Highway Safety Administration with the goal of becoming self-sufficient. In Ohio, funding comes to individual communities as a result of a grant held by the Ohio Department of Public Safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration holds information on a variety of programs, and information can be found on their website at www.nhtsa.gov .
