WLOX Editorial: Keep MS highways safe and fatality free

Congratulations to all of the drivers in Mississippi during the New Year's holiday. You all made it through the holiday alive. We are happy to report there were no fatalities in Mississippi during the New Year's holiday.

The highway patrol and local police agencies made a concerted effort to get keep all drivers safe. More than 26 hundred traffic tickets were handed out.

There were accidents and there were injuries, but for the most part, it looks like most people slowed down, paid attention and drove safely. Let's do that every week and make Mississippi roads fatality free every day.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
