Marion County Sees Decrease in Motorist Fatalities

Posted: Monday, March 1st, 2010 at 6:26 am

Marion County saw the fewest number of motorist fatalities in recent history over the past year. Deputy Brian Bigaouette says he thinks this is from increased awareness and enforcement. He says a lot more commercials and billboards about driving dangers can be seen now than ever before. Bigaouette adds that the Governors Traffic Safety Bureau’s focus on “Click it or Ticket” and “Over the Limit, Under Arrest” campaigns have impacted motorists. The GTSB has also provided law enforcement agencies with additional funding for overtime hours so that they can step up enforcement.
