A new seat belt compliance survey says 85 percent of drivers in the East Central Minnesota region wear their seat belts. The survey was done by traffic safety advocates in late August. They observed drivers in 12 counties. The survey is a part of the state’s Toward Zero Death’s traffic safety initiative.
Minnesota State Patrol Captain Al Kutz says it’s important to continue to educate area motorists on the importance of buckling up. He says the ultimate goal is 100 percent compliance..
Minnesota first passed a law requiring drivers to wear seat belts in 1986. According to the Department of Public Safety seat compliance at that time was only 20 percent.

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A man has been arrested for driving while intoxicated in Stearns County twice within 21 hours.
Sheriff's officials say the 20-year-old man was arrested about 3:30 a.m. Saturday in Waite Park after he was stopped for speeding. He was released about 7 a.m. and was arrested about 17 hours later after police received a complaint about his driving.
In another alcohol-related case, a woman was arrested for driving under the influence when she came to the Stearns County Jail Friday night to pick up her husband, who had also been arrested for drunken driving.
Sheriff John Sanner tells the St. Cloud Times that having someone arrested for DWI who's supposed to be sober and picking up an inmate arrested for drunken driving is more common than most people might think.
