DOVER (WJER) (Feb. 8, 2022) – The community is getting a chance to help guide the efforts of the local traffic safety coalition.
The Tuscarawas County Health Department is inviting anyone who drives in the county to complete the Safe Communities Coalition’s online survey. Director of Health Promotion and Community Relations Jennifer Demuth says it takes about five minutes to complete and includes a field to list the roads and intersections in the county you feel are the most dangerous.
“If as a result of the survey we find that a lot of people have concerns about certain roadways and things, then we can talk to our partners at ODOT and the county engineer about these are some concerning areas that our community brought up and is there anything we can do to make those safer.”
Demuth says it also asks about your driving habits and the traffic safety issues you find the most concerning.
“Obviously, the more responses we can get the more accurate the results will be. So we’re just again encouraging anyone who drives Tuscarawas County roads to please participate in the survey, and we do hope to have all of the surveys in by the end of this second full week in February.”
Demuth says the responses will help the coalition develop educational campaigns and outreach initiatives to make the county’s roadways safer.
