KASSON, MN – Click it or ticket: That’s the message officers are sending to drivers.
Authorities across Minnesota are beefing up their seat belt enforcement for the month of May. On Monday, more than 30 different law enforcement agencies came together at Kasson-Mantorville High School to encourage motorists to buckle up.
A local man who was hit by a drunk driver shared his story. He said his seat belt is the reason he’s here today.
“Everyday I have the opportunity to do something great and pass the message to others. And that’s all because I wore a seatbelt and because of this amazing team of people here and all over Minnesota that help us stay safe everywhere,” said crash survivor Adam Fredericksen.
The event was organized by the Toward Zero Deaths Safe Roads Coalition.
