From Sunday afternoon to Monday morning, there were four deadly crashes on freeways across Phoenix, Arizona.
DPS Director Frank Milstead: “The number of fatalities are on the rise this year, and we will beef up enforcement.
"There will be more state troopers on the roadways and more warnings and citations issued." How does this help prevent accidents?
The only way more patrols helps is, as we all know, when there is a law enforcement presence, people drive a little slower and a bit more carefully.
Will it help? That depends largely on the drivers themselves. Drive with the flow of traffic. Pay attention to the roadway in front of you.
Wear your seatbelt, and no cell phone using (talk or text) while driving. In four crashes, six people died from their injuries.
The DPS has intimated that the victims were not wearing seatbelts.
We are nearing the dog days of summer. Stay attentive, and be careful.
