Delaware County Fatal Crash Numbers Reduced So Far In 2021

It’s a bit counterintuitive, perhaps. At the same time that many Ohio counties have seen substantial increases in Ohio State Highway Patrol traffic enforcement activity in 2021, Delaware County’s numbers are running relatively constant, year-to-date.

The increase statewide may be due to a traffic increase related to the reopening of the economy after 2020’s economic shutdown.

In Delaware County, enforcement stops are actually down, from 7,505 in 2020 to 6,924 this year.

This number is reflected in fatal crash numbers. From January 1 to the end of November, there have been nine such incidents. This compares to 15 last year and 12 in 2019, both year-to-date. Only one of this year’s crashes took place on or adjacent to Interstate 71.
