Officers Out on Patrol this Holiday Season

The Ohio State Highway Patrol has historically increased their presence on the roads during the Christmas season.

In an effort to decrease the number of fatalities, often caused by impaired drivers, officers are diligent to monitor all suspicious activity and ensure safe driving conditions.

This holiday season, amidst the endless shopping and trips to holiday parties, the Ohio State Highway Patrol offers the following safe winter driving tips:

• Allow extra time to get to your destination
• Maintain a safe distance between your vehicle and traffic ahead
• Call 1-877-7-PATROL (1-877-772-8765) to report aggressive or
impaired drivers
• Always pay close attention to bridges and overpasses, as they are often the first to freeze over
