Hardin County saw an increase of fatal car accidents so far this year. The Lima News reports that Ohio State Patrol statistics showed six crashes with six fatalities. Failure to yield violations caused half of these accidents.
In response the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Hardin County Sheriff’s Office and the Kenton and Ada Police Departments are teaming up. They will enact a target enforcement effort during November. The focus will be on failure-to-yield, seatbelt, and distracted driving violations.
