COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio authorities are trying new technology aimed at heading off wrong-way drivers, often the cause of the state's deadliest highway accidents.
The state Department of Transportation will try using cameras that automatically will alert state workers when there are vehicles going the wrong direction. Details are still being worked out, but they plan to test the effort first in Columbus and Dayton.
The Columbus Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/12tb0rv ) that a State Highway Patrol study just released found that 37% of wrong-way crashes resulted in fatalities. That's a fatal rate of more than 100 times the rate of deaths from all crashes from January 2011 to April 2013.
Two people have been killed in central Ohio in wrong-way crashes in the past week.
