Public safety officials expect Minnesota’s 2010 traffic death toll to match 2009′s low count.
This Christmas weekend marked a milestone on Minnesota roads. For the first time in four years, there were no traffic deaths.
So far in 2010, 397 people have died in traffic crashes. That’s just three more than at this point last year, when final reports gave Minnesota a final total of 421 deaths making it the safest year since 1944.
