CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- State troopers in our listening area made more than 1,000 traffic stops over the Fourth of July weekend.

According to Staff Lt. Anne Ralston, Assistant Commander of the Cambridge District, troopers from the Cambridge Post made 1,047 traffic stops over the holiday weekend, including 709 enforcement stops, five injury crashes and six OVI arrests.

District-wide, troopers made nearly 5,000 stops, responding to two fatalities:

Lt. Ralston told AVC News that statewide fatalities dropped by more than half, compared to the state's last four-day enforcement period. The State Patrol recorded 12 fatalities statewide between July 3 - 6. That's down from 26 fatalities in 2011.

During the shortened two-day reporting period in 2013, six people died in five crashes, one of which was alcohol-related.

Statewide, the Patrol made 749 arrests for impaired driving and 318 for drug-related charges over the holiday. During the reporting period, the Patrol made nearly 57,000 traffic contacts.
