Ohio will be stepping up enforcement efforts on the state’s roads this holiday season. Officers will be looking for distracted drivers.
Last year, there were 13,713 crashes in Ohio that involved a driver being distracted by their phones or other devices. Gov. Mike DeWine says over the last five years, between Christmas and New Year’s Day, there have been 1,171 crashes involving distracted drivers.
“Distracted driving must be as culturally unacceptable as drunk driving.”
