DPS Reports On 1st 10 Road Deaths Of 2012

ST. PAUL (WCCO) — The Minnesota Department of Public Safety reports that, of the first 10 people killed on the road, eight were not using their seat belts.

There were three teenagers among the 10 deaths reported for 2012 so far.

“These crash victims are reasons every Minnesotan must remind loved ones to buckle up,” said State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske.

The department also pointed out that, of the 23 motorists killed in December, only five were wearing seat belts.

It is against the law to be inside a moving vehicle without wearing a seat belt.
