7/21/14 – 6:44 A.M.

We’ve been able to drive 70 mph on I-75 for a year now, and for the most part nothing much has changed. The Courier reports there were a few more accidents on the interstate in Hancock County since the limit was increased, but that’s mainly blamed on the brutal winter.

There were 38 more crashes during the 2013-2014 recording period. However, the 289 crashes reported in the county were only 8 more than during the 2011-2012 period.

Lt. Matthew Crow tells the newspaper the number of crashes has come back down since January and February.
