Facts first, please! In 2011, Ohio's rural interstates had 49 deaths at a rate of 0.54 per 100-million-miles. That's FIVE PERCENT (5%) of Ohio traffic deaths on the SAFEST BY FAR rural roads; other rural roads have rates of 1.50 to 3.87, which is 3-to-7 times higher! If safety was the concern, the Patrol would barely spend any time on the interstates. You can look at the Patrol's own website, look at the fatality map for Belmont County, and see for yourself.
