Richland County's on track to have the fewest traffic deaths in years. And that trend goes far beyond the county line. State officials say it could turn out to be the safest year ever on Ohio roadways. So far this year, 945 people have died in traffic-related crashes. That's the lowest number since the state started keeping records in 1936, when nearly 2,400 people died in traffic crashes. 1969 was the deadliest year, when nearly 2,800 people were killed in traffic crashes. Those numbers have been on a steady decline ever since. Just over 1,000 people died in 2011, making it the safest year so far. But traffic deaths increased a bit last year. ODOT says improved roadway engineering and safer vehicles help make the roads safer. But ODOT Director Jerry Wray says, in many cases, deadly crashes are preventable. He says drivers decide how safe the roads are going to be at any given time by driving sober, eliminating distractions, and wearing seatbelts.
