More Seat Belt Enforcement In Minnesota
Law enforcement agencies from across the state of Minnesota are on the lookout for motorists who don’t buckle up.
More than 300 agencies in Minnesota are hoping to save lives by making sure people use their seat belts.
The extra enforcement begins Monday and runs through the end of the month.
Authorities say preliminary numbers show 38 people who chose not to wear seat belts died in fatal crashes this year.
“It’s been proven time and again that seat belts save lives and in Minnesota they say that about half of the fatalities that happen in the roadways have a contributing factor of not having a seat belt,” said Moorhead Police Department Lt. Tory Jacobson.
Grand Forks is also stepping up seat belt enforcement tomorrow through the end of the month.
