With the next two fall festivals bringing heavy traffic on area roads on the weekends, Door County Sheriff Steve Delarwelle is reminding drivers to allow for added time in getting where they need to go. With fall colors nearing the peak and an increase in visitors to Door County, Delarwelle says you should take notice of vehicles around you and be wary of distracted drivers.
Delarwelle says area traffic, especially in northern Door County, the next two weekends will rival that of the Fourth of July weekend. According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, there have been 399 fatal crashes statewide so far in 2018, compared to 411 in 2017 through September.
