Ohio Traffic Related Deaths

Ohio Traffic Related Deaths

The Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) and The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) continue their safety initiative to bring awareness to the high number of traffic deaths. 

ODOT District Two shares these statistics with the media every other week. 

As of this week, Ohio has recorded 797 traffic deaths in 2016. This is about even with traffic deaths this time last year.

Ohio will again focus on increasing seat belt use – the most significant thing you can do (or wear) to survive a crash. Last year, about 32% of all traffic deaths involved unbelted drivers and passengers.

Over the past three years, about 64% of all unbelted-related crashes (regardless of severity) involved men.  About 30% of all unbelted crashes involved drivers and passengers between the ages of 15-25.  This is a great reminder for parents to model safe driving by wearing a seat belt all the time in every seat position, including the back.
