Richland Traffic Enforcement Stops, Crashes, Running Substantially Ahead of Last Year

6 Dec , 2021  

By 1812Blockhouse

Perhaps it is due to a traffic increase related to the reopening of the economy after 2020’s economic shutdown.

Whatever the case it is clear that, based on recent numbers shared by the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Richland County has seen an across the board increase in activity of the Patrol related to traffic enforcement over the last 11 months.

The increase has been a deadly one as well. Since the start of the year, 13 people have been killed on county roads, as compared to 7 last year. Only four of those fatal crashes occurred on or in close proximity to Interstate 71.

Ohio Looking At Variable Speed Limits

1 Mar , 2019  

On Thursday, the Ohio Department of Transportation released details about a proposal in the next two-year transportation budget, House Bill 62, to identify specific roadways where variable speed limits could enhance driver safety.

“The goal is not to constantly shift speed limits or install new speed limit signs on all of Ohio’s roads throughout the state. Instead, the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) wants the ability to study specific stretches of roadway. We would analyze crash data, look at any peculiar weather phenomena, and see how congestion affects travel time to determine if a variable speed limit, one that changes only in certain conditions – such as bad weather – would improve safety along that specific stretch of road,” said ODOT Director Jack Marchbanks.
