Jamestown, CA…Unfortunately in 2019, 11 lives were lost in traffic collisions in Tuolumne County. Some of those were a result of drivers choosing to drive while intoxicated, while others just chose to drive recklessly. Our goal is to reduce as many fatal collisions as possible, but we are unable to be on every strip of asphalt on every roadway in this county at one time. So, with the help of other motorists, we can combat the number one reasons for fatal collisions by them calling 9-1-1 when they believe they are driving behind an intoxicated driver or a reckless driver.
