The Redwood Falls Police Department and Redwood County Sheriffs Office is advising football fans to always buckle up and make a game plan for a sober ride home. During Super Bowl weekends 2007-2009, there were 1,804 motor vehicle crashes in Minnesota, resulting in five deaths and 28 severe injuries. Three of the five deaths occurred on Super Sunday -- two of which were alcohol-related. Only one of the five motor- ists killed was belted. During this same time peri- od, 1,405 motorists were arrested for DWI, "Super Bowl festivities typically start midday and last for several hours, so designate your sober drivers well before the party starts," says Officer Braun. Braun Notice to Walnut Grove & area subscribers & readers A drop box for various news items is located at the... Heson's Mercantile 507-859-2600 next to the Walnut Grove Post Office.

Each year;75 .pereear of the drinking drivers killed are. not buckled. "It's the law that everyone in the vehicle, in every seating position, buckles up. Wearing a seat belt and driving sober is the best game plan for a safe Super Bowl weekend." The Redwood Falls Police Department and The Redwood County Sheriffs Office will be enforcing seat belt and driving under the influence offenses through- out Super Bowl weekend. During 2007-2009 in Redwood County, there were 11 traffic deaths and of those, 3 were alcohol-relat- ed. During this same time period, 139 were arrested for DWI in Redwood County. Each year in Minnesota, alcohol-related crashes account for more than 140 traffic deaths and 30,000-plus motorists are arrested for DWI. Braun says party hosts should review the rules with their guests prior to kickoff: * Either use a sober driv- er c;r plan to crash at the party. * Be a team player: require every driver and passenger fasten their seat belt before hitting the road. * Volunteer as the day's official: if someone plans to drive home after drinking, throw a flag and find them a sober ride home. mcan COTTONWOOD COUNTY COURT Jan.6-19, 2011 Failure to stop: $130.00 - Brianna Nicole Ramos, Mt.

The Safe and Sober pro- gram is a program of out- reach, education and enforcement. "The Redwood County Sheriff's Office has consistently been doing an excellent job and I do not hesitate to say they have saved lives" said Brad Kollmann, Law Enforcement Liaison for the Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety, Speed, distracted driving and impaired driving are some of the most common reasons why people crash but failure to wear seat belts is the greatest reason why people die or are seriously injured in motor vehicle crashes. Approximately 70 percent of the fatalities in Minnesota occur in rural areas such as the Redwood Falls 'County. area and a'disproportionate' number of those fatalities are the young, those, between 16 and 24 years of age. They continue to be the highest risk drivers and they are the least likely to wear a seat belt. Brad Kollmann/ Law Enforcement Liaison for the Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety who awarded the Sheriffs Office the radar at the Redwood County Board meeting stated that "although there continues to be an alarming number of serious injuries and fatalities on our Minnesota roadways, it is agencies such as the Redwood County Sheriffs Office which really do save lives and reduce injuries because of their continued efforts to gain compliance with the traffic laws which are the most likely to cause death and injury", I have no doubt that the reason we are at one of the lowest levels of fatalities since World War II is the fact that law enforce- ment, such as the Redwood County Sheriff's Office is committed to protecting the area residents including the motoring public. "The, Redwood county Sheriffs Office's dedication to traffic safety is helping to drive Minnesota Toward Zero Traffic Deaths," says Cheri Marti, director of OTS. "The Department of Public Safety is proud of the work that Sheriff Hanson and his Deputies are doing to enforce traffic laws and encourage safe driving behavior." The Saf~ & Sober Program is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and administered by Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety (OTS). Safe & Sober is designed to reduce traffic fatalities and serious inju- ries.
