The Minnesota Department of Public Safety is using the anniversary of last year’s deadliest day on the roads to remind motorists to focus on driving and staying safe.
Minnesota has hit 200 road fatalities for the year as a crackdown on drinking and driving continues through the Labor Day weekend, according to officials with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety released a report Thursday which shows that 68 percent of fatal accidents last year involved drivers who had blood alcohol levels of at least .16, which is twice the legal limit for driving.
A report released Wednesday said 368 people died in traffic crashes in Minnesota last year, and that figure is the state’s lowest in more than 60 years, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
Minnesota officials say the number of alcohol-related deaths in the state last year was the lowest on record.
A report released by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Thursday shows fatal accidents involving motorcycles are up 30 percent from this time last year.
