Florida’s Duval County has an odd way of telling drivers not to speed — by reassuring them that they’re more likely to die in a car wreck than at the hands of some psycho killer.
On Thursday, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office tweeted: “In Jacksonville, you are more likely to die in a traffic crash than be murdered. Slow down, Duval!”
Duval County does have a high number of traffic-related deaths, according to Florida Health Charts.
In 2019, the county recorded 16.2 deaths per 100,000 residents, compared with the state’s 14.7 deaths per 100,000.
