MACON - On Monday, April 5, at 10:00 a.m. during the county commissioners’ meeting at the Knox County Courthouse, Knox County was recognized for having zero fatalities in 2020. Knox County is one of three counties in the northeast region to accomplish this. Clark County and Audrain County are the other two with zero fatalities in 2020.
Cpl. Justin Dunn, with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, and a representative of the Northeast Coalition for Roadway Safety, presented the commissioners a poster, along with some Coke Zero and Lifesavers, as a small token of the work taken by everyone to help save lives and get the message out about roadway safety. For safety reasons, the presentation was held outside.
“We are proud of what Knox County has accomplished and hope to be back again next year in this county and others,” Cpl. Dunn said.
