Fatal Traffic Accidents are Up

The Brainerd office of the Minnesota State Patrol is in the midst of their December DWI enforcement program.

Sergent Curt Mowers tells KLKS News, they find impaired drivers also do not use good judgment when it comes to using a seat belt. 

Mowers says there have been eight more fatal accidents on Minnesota roads this year compared to last.  He says one third of those were alcohol related.

Mowers also wants to remind SUV owners, that their vehicles are as prone to accidents on icy roads, as any other vehicle.
