"A lot of traffic fatalities have substantially gone down in this county," Mr. Stanton said. "But keep in mind, Prince George's County had one of the highest fatality rates in the state. We're making progress and beginning to really bring those numbers down. This is just another example of why we need to stay on top of it."
"When people think nobody is paying attention, people can get hurt, people can get killed," said Barry Stanton, the county's public safety deputy chief administrative officer. "It's important to at least let the community know we're on top of this, we're paying attention and we'll continue to do that. Any loss of life for this kind of stuff is too much."
