Crash Fatalities In Alabama Down This Holiday Season

Crash Fatalities In Alabama Down This Holiday Season

Traffic fatalities were down this holiday season in Alabama compared to last year. According to Al.com, only three people died as a result of automobile crashes in Alabama this holiday, versus the five that died last year.

Alabama state troopers say they investigated three fatal accidents over the 78-hour holiday period. A spokesman for the department stated that a pedestrian was killed after being struck in Russell county. Also, two separate crashes occurred in Jefferson county, which resulted in the death of a driver and another pedestrian.

Troopers attribute the lower numbers of fatalities and accidents on an increased efforts by law enforcement across the state to crack down on intoxicated drivers during the holiday season. Law enforcement efforts included:

  • Public Safety’s holiday safety initiative includes extra patrols
  • Sobriety checkpoints
  • Line patrols and LIDAR speed detection

Troopers also targeted other violations that often contribute to crashes, including: speeding, following too closely, driver distraction, and improper passing.

The Alabama auto accident attorneys with the Norris Injury Lawyers applaud state and local law enforcement agencies efforts to make Alabama highways safer for everyone this holiday season. They would also like to remind motorists to refrain from consuming alcohol before driving.
