Williams County Sheriff Tom Kochert today announced the release of a traffic safety public service announcement with multi-platinum, award winning country music performer Toby Keith. The PSA was created with support and funding through a cooperative agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Starting this week, the NSA will be distributing the PSA to 1900 TV outlets and radio stations across the country.
Traffic accidents claim far too many lives each year, and it is a needless waste of life. Sheriff Kochert encourages all Williams County citizens to slow down, focus on the drive, and especially to drive sober this summer, and all year long. We can do this Williams County!
