The Ohio State Highway Patrol crackdown on impaired drivers is paying off.

In 2013, OVI related crashes accounted for 33 percent of all fatal crashes in Ohio. This is down from an average of 43 percent from the 2010 to 2012 time periods.

The patrol reports that for the second year in a row troopers issued more than 24,000 citations for OVI.

There were 11,226 OVI-related crashes on Ohio roadways, killing 30 nd injuring 6,843. Speed was a contributing factor in 60 percent of all OVI-related crashes.

"We can't fight the battle against impaired driving on our own. We need your commitment to make our roads safe," said Lt. Michael Vinson wiht eh Bucyrus Post of the State Highway Patrol.

"You can contribute to a safer Ohio by actively influencing friends and family to make safe, responsible decisions like planning ahead to designate a driver and insisting that everyone in the vehicle is buckled up," Lt. Vinson said.

Last year, state troopers from the Bucyrus Post, arrested 203 impaired drivers in this area. The patrol encourages the public to call #677 to report impaired drivers, drug activity or stranded motorists.
