Another Traffic Fatality in May Adds to Overall Total

A review of statistics for traffic crashes for the month of May shows that once again Pickaway County has added another fatality to the overall total for the year. Unfortunately, the number of fatalities are increasing in Pickaway County. Safe Communities of Pickaway County continues to promote traffic safety, and use educational tools to make drivers, passengers, and pedestrians aware that safety needs to be a priority every day. A recent survey taken in the community just prior to the recent “Click It or Ticket” National Seat Belt Campaign, proved that the lack of seat belt use remains an issue in Pickaway County. Although there are many reasons as to why a fatality may occur on our roadways, the lack of seat belt use has proven deadly over the past several years.

“Pickaway County will undergo surveys this month to see what our seat belt use rate is overall”, noted Director for Safe Communities of Pickaway County Teresa C. Carper. “I encourage driver to buckle up this month, and continue to ‘Buckle Up Every Trip Every Time’ in order to improve our injury and fatality rate in this community. Pickaway County has continued to have one of the lowest seat belt use rates in the State.”

As the summer months continue, drivers also need to be aware that distractions are not unusual. However, when you add cell phone use and texting to the normal distractions that all drivers experience, the likelihood of a crash increases. With children out of school, pedestrians and bicyclists added to our streets, and the increase in motorcycles on our roadways, added distractions can prove deadly. No one every plans to injure another person when they answer their phone or send a text. But statistically, cell phone use and texting have added to the overall crash, injury, and fatality rate nationwide. Many of those injured or killed have been innocent victims. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asks you to “Stay Alive Don’t Text and Drive”. Learn more about the hazards of distracted driving, and the importance of seat belt use at their website, www.nhtsa.gov .

National “Ride To Work Day” is June 16th

Motorcycle Safety Awareness should be a priority every day…….if you are a rider, or if you are a driver sharing the road. National “Ride to Work Day” is a reminder that safety for motorcycles should be a priority all year long, and riders are encouraged to share this view and ride their motorcycle to work on June 16th to show their support. As a rider, certain safety measures should become a habit each and every time you take to the road. For other drivers, making sure you give motorcycles the same rights as other motor vehicles will go a long way to reducing crashes and deaths on our roadways.

Distracted Driving has become a major awareness theme for traffic safety advocates. This concern increases during the warmer months of the year when motorcycles become more prevalent on the road. Making sure you see all that you need to see when you are behind the wheel, and that includes motorcycles, can save a life. Furthermore, it is important to remember that motorcyclists need a full lane length. Although motorcycles are smaller vehicles, they need room to maneuver safely.

As a rider, make sure you “Ride S.M.A.R.T.” . Always ride Sober, Motorcycle endorsed, Alert, with the Right gear, and Trained. Riders need to make sure they follow all the same traffic laws as all other road users, wear an approved DOT helmet, and limit distractions. Motorcycle riding can be, and is, a great way to travel if safety measures are observed. In 2012, 4957 persons were killed in motorcycle crashes nationwide. In Pickaway County, the number of injuries and deaths over the past several years has made this type of traffic safety initiative a priority of the Safe Communities of Pickaway County program, and law enforcement alike. Making sure riders and other road users respect each other, the laws, and the road, can reduce crashes and traffic related deaths significantly.

So “Ride to Work” this June 16th, and show your support for safety on our roadways. As for other road users…… “Watch Out for Motorcycles” on June 16th and every day you travel.

Officials Review Traffic Fatalities

A Committee formed within the Safe Communities of Pickaway County program reviewed the fatalities for the months of January through March 2014. The Committee looked at three fatalities that occurred during this period in order to make recommendations to improve safety on Pickaway County roadways.

The Committee noted that although the lack of seat belt use did not play the significant role that it has played in past reviews, it did play a role in one of the fatalities reviewed. Impaired driving was also a concern in another crash, and has remained a matter of discussion in previous reviews. US 23, and the intersections near Circleville, have had a significant number of crashes and fatalities over the past several years. The Pickaway County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to work with other Sheriffs’ Offices along the highway in an effort to reduce crashes and fatalities. “Project S.T.A.R.” is a coordinated program involving 7 Sheriff Offices along US 23 to increase enforcement. The group plans to work together within the program throughout the summer months.

The Committee also discussed the recent “Click It or Ticket” mobilization, and was provided information that indicates that seat belt use in Pickaway County is not improving. Seat belt use is the number one way to improve a person’s chances of surviving a crash. Pickaway County has continued to struggle in this effort, and the number of fatalities that involved a driver or passenger without a seatbelt is the reason for the continued concern. The Safe Communities Program will continue to promote seatbelt use, while enforcement of seat belt laws will be a priority of many law enforcement officials.

The Committee will continue to monitor the reasons for crashes, and make recommendations for the improvement of safety throughout Pickaway County.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides a variety of suggestions and information to help reduce crashes and save lives. For more information on traffic safety, visit their website at www.nhtsa.gov .
