Crime, car crashes linked?

Shawnee is going to start putting traffic patrols in places where wrecks and crimes both tend to occur, Brad Cooper reports. Research has shown that places with a lot of crashes tend to have a lot of crime, too, an NHTSA expert says. By putting highly-visible patrols in those areas, some departments have been able to cut both wrecks and offenses like burglary and robbery. Shawnee will focus on 75th Street, between Switzer and Quivira.
