By Associated Engineering Press

Local and state law enforcement will increase their presence on Alabama roads as Memorial Day, and the inevitability of holiday motorists, approaches.

According to data from the Center for Advanced Public Safety at the University of Alabama, 3,580 wrecks were reported for Calhoun County in 2011 — an average of nearly 10 vehicle accidents per day.

 

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
