BROWN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -
Troopers are cracking down on vehicles failing to yield in Brown and Adams counties.
The effort will start on Sunday and run through March 9 in an effort to reduce crashes caused by a vehicle's failure to yield.
Troopers in the area are specifically targeting State route 32 due to a high number of failure to yield related accidents.
Last year, there were over 37 thousand crashes in Ohio cause by a failure to yield. This includes 187 deaths and over 23 thousand injuries.
Drivers are encouraged to come to a complete stop at all stop signs and ensure that no oncoming traffic is approaching. The Ohio Department of Public Safety claims that pausing for just a couple of extra seconds could save a life.
Officials say that failure to yield enforcement is their primary goal. However, aggressive driving habits such as speed and O.V.I will be targeted as well.
