In the wake of I-75 tragedy motorists will soon see improved signage

By

In the weeks following the January I-75 tragedy that left 11 people dead, Republican State Representative Keith Perry from District 22 pushed lawmakers for improved signage along the interstate.  Perry says the accidents that occurred during the smoky and foggy conditions on the section of the interstate crossing Payne’s Prairie could have been avoided if motorists could have been warned about the conditions.  Representative Perry talked with Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Donna Green-Townsend after briefly reviewing the FDLE’s just released report on the accidents.
