MN Traffic Deaths Up In 2013
A increase in traffic deaths in Minnesota has officials reminding drivers to be safe behind the wheel.
The Associated Press reports that five more people were killed in car accidents over the weekend, putting the state over the 200-mark for the year. The Department of Public Safety said that is up from 175 at this time last year.
Motorists are being urged to avoid distracted and impaired driving and are reminded to avoid driving when they are too tired to focus on the road.
