FINDLAY, Ohio (WTVG) - Starting next week, drivers in Hancock County will be under increased enforcement for failure to yield violations.

Starting next week, and continuing throughout the summer season, Findlay troopers will be focusing their enforcement efforts on failure to yield violations such as stop sign and red light violations. “Unfortunately we have seen a large increase in fatal and serious injury crashes this year alone, and when we look back at a one year period from May of 2018 through the end of May this year, we have had 60 crashes in which people were either seriously injured or killed,” said Lt. Matt Crow, Findlay Post Commander.

Findlay Post troopers will be supplemented in their efforts by the OSHP Aviation Unit as well as troopers from the Lima Post and Bowling Green Posts throughout the enforcement effort.

During this enforcement effort, there will be zero tolerance for failure to yield violations.
