COLUMBUS, OH (Press release) -
The Ohio State Highway Patrol made more than 29,000 traffic contacts this July 4 holiday, an increase of 13 percent when compared to the previous year.
In addition, four people lost their lives over the two-day reporting period, which began July 3 at midnight and lasted through July 4 at 11:59 p.m. Of the fatal crashes, one crash was known to be alcohol-related.
Despite the shortened mid-week reporting period, the OSHP made 282 arrests for impaired driving, an increase of 7 percent when compared to the same period in 2012. Troopers also issued 1,745 citations for aggressive driving, an increase of 29 percent over 2012.
"Impaired driving continues to be a significant threat to all Ohioans," said Col. John Born, OSHP superintendent. "The Patrol is committed to removing these dangerous drivers from our roadways."
Troopers encourage the public to continue using #677 to report impaired drivers or drug activity.
