OHIO (WOWO): September is Safe Driving Awareness Month in Ohio.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol is asking motorist to keep the roadways safe by driving buckled, focused and sober.
“By devoting their full attention to the road, motorists can reduce their risk of getting into a crash,” said Lt. Tim Grigsby, Post Commander. “We need all motorists to practice safe driving habits to make the roadways safe all across Ohio.”
September was designated Safe Driving Awareness Month in June 2014 with Senate bill 294 to honor Maria Tiberi and other victims in crashes. Tiberia was a 21-year-old college student who died in a crash in Sept. 2013.
