The Ohio State Highway Patrol continues to focus on impaired drivers in its ongoing effort to contribute to a safer Ohio.

 

According to a release, OVI related crashes accounted for 34 percent of all fatal crashes in 2017, which was a decrease from the year before.

 

Of drivers considered at fault in OVI related crashes, 52 percent were between the ages of 21 to 39, and of them, 71 percent were male.

 

The public is encouraged to call #677 to report impaired drivers, drug activity or stranded motorists.
