Over the past few weeks, five individuals have died in three crashes in the Ashland area. WMFD's Lauren Artino spoke with officials to look at the steps they're taking to make these areas safer.

Representatives from the State Highway Patrol, the Ohio Department of Transportation and local law enforcement met recently to discuss and brainstorm safety measures for U.S. Routes 42 and 30.

Fatal accidents over the past few weeks occurred at the intersections of U.S Route 42 and Ohio 302, U.S. 42 and County Road 995 as well as U.S 30 and County Road 2175.

Lt. Ray Durant of the Ashland Post State Highway Patrol attended the meeting and says many great ideas came from it. Crash reports are still processing, but Lt. Durant pointed out the common denominator in the fatal accidents; the victims weren't wearing a seat-belt.

Christine Myers of ODOT was also in attendance and talked to us about the steps ODOT takes every day to ensure your safety on the roads.

Although these measures won't bring back the lives that were lost, officials hope they can decrease and ultimately prevent fatalities, especially in these high-traffic areas. Officers have many programs in place in our local schools..such as "5 minutes for life" and mock crashes which teach students safe driving techniques.

Young or old, officials want to stress the importance of safe driving.
