In April 2006 our Post District recorded 14 fatalities. This is a significant increase from previous months. The Commander of Post 3, Captain Bill Payton stated that the increase is "alarming." "We will focus our resources on problem areas so that we might reduce, if not eliminate, the types of tragic collisions that occurred in the month of April."
