speed limit has increased on many interstates, and Ohio State Highway Patrol
says they've been handing out fewer speeding tickets.
limit has increased to 70 miles per hour on many interstates, and some people
think that might mean more speeders, but OSHP has found the opposite.
number of tickets issued at the Bowling Green OSHP post from July through
September of this year is down one percent compared to last year. Patrolmen say
that's a difference of about 30 tickets, and while that's not a dramatic
decrease, they say they've seen a difference in speeding.
can tell you from myself working out there on the interstate, it's a little
tougher to find people speeding now," said Lt. Jerrod Savidge.
people, including the patrolmen, say they were worried about speeders when the limit
surprises me," Briana Bauer said of the decrease in tickets. "I think they
should be handing out more because people would be going faster."
number that has increased from last year is the number of people getting
arrested for driving under the influence.
arrests are actually up 49 percent for the same time period," Lt. Savidge said.
say they don't think people are driving slower, the speed limit increase just
caught up to the flow of traffic.
