ahead of the busy holiday travel season

What:               The Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Ohio Department of Transportation will discuss the high number of
                        traffic deaths in Ohio this year and what is being done to address the issue. We’ll also have a visual display
                        to help show the number of traffic deaths in Ohio.

When:              Tuesday, December 22, 2015 9 a.m.

Why:                So far this year, Ohio has recorded more than 1,000 traffic deaths. Travel around the holidays is expected to
                        be at record levels and we want to encourage Ohioans to be safe as they travel to their destinations.
