Troopers crack down on failure to yield


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.
