A jump in rear-end traffic collisions in Winder has Winder Police Department officials on alert to make sure drivers are no closer than eight car lengths behind the car in front of them.
According to data presented at the March 8 Winder City Council meeting by WPD Chief Dennis Dorsey, the city saw an increase in low-speed rear-end car crashes last year.
In 2009, a total of 192 rear-end collisions and accidents occurred on state routes in the city. That number jumped to 219 in 2010, a difference of 27 fender benders. Most of those were by younger drivers under the age of 25.
