Fatal Alabama auto accidents were at a four-year low with only four days left in the year, according to The Birmingham News. Gov. Bob Riley implored Alabama residents to ride home safely New Year’s Eve with a sober driver to avoid deadly auto accidents.
From the first of the year through Dec. 26, there were 758 Alabama car accident deaths, down 61 from 2006, according to the Alabama Department of Public Safety. Over the New Year’s weekend, checkpoints and extra patrols will be set up in an attempt to keep the number of auto accidents down and ensure the safety of Alabama drivers.
