Two officers were killed in off-duty accidents. Both are still under investigation but it appears that one was the fault of a drunk driver, and the other was now wearing his seat belt.
To all my friends and readers out there, I can not stress enough the importance of wearing your seat belt. Not just during the Click-It or Ticket campaign, but every time you are in a car.
Also, always be alert while you are driving. If you notice someone weaving or crossing the yellow line, choose safety and pull off. If you see someone driving in an unsafe manner, get to a safe place.
