A Good Day to Pay Attention While Driving
Today is distracted driver awareness day.
If you are driving today, you might want to be aware that driving distracted today could get you a ticket.
State Patrol Sergent Curt Mowers tells KLKS News, cops and deputies in the Brainerd Lakes Area will be looking for people texting while driving.
Mowers says 20 percent of the accidents in Minnesota are caused by drivers who are doing more than just driving. He also says the number of traffic fatalities is up this year, following a record low number of fatal accidents last year.
