The Ohio Department of Transportation and the Ohio State Highway Patrol held an event recently to announce the establishment of a distracted driving safety corridor on Interstate 75 in Allen and Hancock counties.
The event was held at the southbound rest area on I-75, south of Findlay.
A section of I-75 from south of the village of Beaverdam in Allen County, to the rest areas in Hancock County, south of the city of Findlay, is being designated as a distracted driving safety corridor by a series of signs which warn of the dangers of driving distracted.
The signs are installed in both the northbound and southbound directions.
Motorists are informed that they are entering the corridor and there is zero tolerance for unsafe driving behaviors.
Law enforcement will be patrolling the corridor frequently and conducting traffic stops when violations are observed.
Signs are also placed at each interchange so motorists entering the corridor mid-point are alerted.
