I think that's right. Two too many.

Statistical fact from the Ohio Department of Public Saftey - Every day in Ohio nearly 3 people lose their lives in a traffic related crash. Fathers, Mothers, sons, daughters, brothers and sisters having their lives cut short.

 

Another fact: When drivers I see an officer they often take their foot off the gas no matter what speed they are going.

 

Yet another fact: When drivers slow down and they are more aware people are safer to themselves and others.

 

Knowing the facts I’m okay with officers being on the watch, I appreciate them actually. 

 

I will leave the decision making of how many and where they are to those who know the facts of what’s going on.

Not to be smart but can you please post the links to where you are quoting your facts from?

This is helpful when traffic is moving smoothly down I75, then all of a sudden brake lights everywhere. Traffic getting confused and slowing down. The cause? OSP parked in the median. As soon as the traffic is past it smooths out again.
