More patrols might improve Rock County road safety
Sixteen people have died on Rock County roadways so far this year, but it's difficult to know why the rate of fatalities might be a little lower this year. Kyle Geissler reports.
Additional patrols paid for with grant money might be helping to keep road fatalities down in Rock County.
Rock County Sheriff's Office Captain Jude Maurer says they're targeting times and locations where crashes occur.
Maurer says the extra patrols can keep roads safer by looking for dangerous behaviors behind the wheel.
Sixteen people have died on Rock County roads in ten crashes in the first three-quarters of the year. Twenty-three people died in 2010.
