Rate of fatalities in April have doubled

From MassDOT

MassDOT is reporting that the rate of fatalities on Massachusetts roadways doubled in April: with 50% less traffic recorded on major highways, 28 individuals died in crashes, compared with the month of April 2019 when there were 27 deaths on roadways in the state.  The high fatality rate last month, underscores the importance of not exceeding the posted speed limit, wearing a seatbelt, driving sober, and obeying the hands-free law.

A reminder to use good judgement when driving.  Don’t speed, don’t look at your phone. Wear a seat belt. Don’t drink and drive.
