1 - I am so glad they started tracking this information.

2 - That is a significant reduction in fatalities.

Good to see this.

I was also pleased to see this.  I know we can never get it to zero, but the fact that it gets lower every year is certainly a positive development!

Haskin talks about the success that the NYRA has with expanding coverage thru television to reach out to people. It's nice to see they'll show Arlington as our local announcers are the pits!!!!
