Ohio State Highway Patrol focuses on Memorial Day safety

A daily tally of impaired driver arrests, as well as alcohol-involved crashes will be made available to the public at www.statepatrol.ohio.gov Memorial Day weekend, according to a May 23 news release from the Ohio State HighwayPatrol.

The agency's efforts are being conducted in conjunction with a national effort to reduce impaired driving incidents and crashes.

According to the Patrol, last Memorial Day holiday, six of the 14 people killed on Ohio roadways were involved in alcohol-related crashes.

In addition, 100 people were injured due to alcohol-related crashes.

Each year, more than 50,000 Ohioans are convicted of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Troopers encourage the public to continue phoning 1-877-7-PATROL to report dangerous drivers or stranded motorists, or 1-800-GRAB DUI to report impaired drivers.
