OSP announces new initiative to make SR-32 safe

BROWN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol will be conducting a Problem Behavior Initiative (PBI) to specifically address failure to yield violations on State Route 32 in Brown County.

Numerous serious accidents have already occurred this year as a failure to yield to oncoming traffic at crossing intersections on SR-32, according to the OSP's Georgetown Post.

"Drivers are urged to pay close attention to stop signs and signals when traversing Ohio's roadways," said Lt. McElfresh, Georgetown Post Commander. "They need to ensure the intersection is clear before entering it.  If they don't, tragic results can occur."

The new PBI will run through the entire month of April. Troopers will focus their enforcement efforts on drivers who fail to stop at stop signs and those who fail to yield to oncoming traffic, OSP said.

OSP also said troopers will be on the lookout for speed and following too closely to other vehicles.
