MN State Patrol belts unbuckled motorists Troopers from the Marshall office of the MN State Patrol cited 206 unbuckled motorists during the statewide Safe and Sober enhanced seatbelt enforce- ment campaign, May 24 - June 6. The MN Dept. of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) coordinated the efforts of more than 430 agencies and the State Patrol to increase seatbelt use. In MN from 1998 to 2002, 2,572 people died in traffic crashes and over half were not wearing seatbelts. "We're trying to change behavior to get people in the habit of buckling up," says Lt. Brian L. West. "We hope this enforcement effort will prevent more deaths and serious injuries. Troopers observed a higher seatbelt compliance rate during this enforcement mobilization; we certainly hope our state's seatbelt compliance rate con- tinues toward our ultimate goal of reaching 100 percent. Unfortunately. approximate- ly 20 percent of drivers and occupants in Southwest MN choose to violate the seatbeh law, which can have devas- tating results if a crash occurs. At highway speeds, a crash that includes unbelted occupants results in serious injuries and death. Handing out seatbelt tickets is better than showing up at a crash scene where a person wasn't restrained," says Lt. West. The Safe and Sober cam- paign is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and administered by OTS. The program is designed to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries.
