Deadly Weekend

May 27th, 2008 by flanews

About 30 people died on Florida highways over the holiday weekend. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 27 people were killed in car accidents. Last Memorial Day weekend 29 people were killed on state roads. Florida Highway Patrol Captain Mark Welch said officers can only do so much to keep drivers safe. The rest is up to the public.

Were doing our part to make your visit safe here in Florida, what we ask the public to do is to do their part, to drive the speed limit, to wear their seatbelt, if theyre going to drink, dont drive, said Welch.

Welch credits the states aggressive advertising campaign and the Click-it-or-Ticket program for the decline.
