Deadly Ohio turnpike wrecks caused by speed, trucks, and weather

Three major vehicular crashes that occurred on a single day earlier this month, in locations approximately one hour west of Cleveland on the Ohio turnpike, were primarily caused by speed, snow, and big trucks, according to a report by the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

New ban is not leading to many tickets for texting and driving

Although in 2012 Ohio passed a ban on texting and driving, the new law, which went into effect in 2013, has not resulted in high numbers of citations. In Cleveland, as few as 12 drivers have been reported as receiving citations under the new law. Other major Ohio cities have seen similarly low numbers of citations--15 in Columbus and 32 in Cincinnati. Overall, only 230 citations have been reported across the state. By comparison, more than 23,000 people were ticketed for impaired driving and more than 360,000 drivers were cited for speeding--a rate of citation that is exponentially higher.

Ohio law would make ignition interlock devices mandatory for DUI

Drunk driving is an extremely reckless behavior that sadly isn't always an isolated incident in an offender's life. Accidents involving a drunk driver often result in serious or even fatal injuries for those caught up in the collision. Helping lower the recidivism rate for drunk driving is one way to help reduce DUI-related fatalities.
