Mike Stock (6-14-2023) We are riding safer this year but we can always do better. Last year to date 830 crashes with 39 fatalities - this year 630 crashes with 30 fatalities. Alcohol last year 62 crashes, this year 42 crashes. Speed last year 156, this year 117 with the same fatalities - 8.

(6-14-2023) This year ABATE of Ohio turned 45 years old.

And I would like to send out my personal thanks to all the members and officers: past, present and future because you are the ones who make things happen for almost 4 and a half decades possible..................( Read more....)

(12-4-2023) It has been a fruitful year gaining more than 25 new members (I thank each of you so much) but I lost just as many, and I am working so hard to at least get over the 100 hump! Come on Abate members, I know you can help a girl out! I would really like to see every Abate of Ohio member an MRF member. HOW GREAT WOULD THAT BE !!!!!!!!!!!............ ( Read more )

When reports come in,
ODOT will notifiy signal owners ( often a city or county ) about the situation and offer recommendations for improvement.
