Failure to yield’ causes 49K crashes in 2015  Reprint from My Daily Sentinel


 Motorists who don’t yield (according to Ohio State Highway Patrol officials) for other vehicles in the right-of-way cause far too many crashes in Ohio each year.

This Violation  causes crashes, known as  FTY - Failure to Yield, rose in 2015; total FTY crashes increased 9 percent compared to 2014,  a 28 percent increase in fatal FTY crashes.

Thirty-six percent of FTY crashes (resulted in deaths or injuries) in 2015, compared to 25 percent of all crashes. In total, 49,473 crashes on Ohio roadways occurred when the at-fault driver failed to yield, resulting in 206 deaths and 28,857 injuries.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol are asking motorists to pay attention to which vehicles have the right-of-way and yield to them. Troopers wrote 23,623 citations that included an FTY violation last year and will continue enforcing the law to make Ohio roads safer.

“Traffic can be frustrating, but that’s no excuse to endanger yourself and other drivers,” said Lt. Max Norris, Gallia/Meigs post commander. “It’s always best for all motorists to remain calm and yield for other vehicles that have the right-of-way.”
