Letter to the Editor: Enforcing seat belts is meant to save lives
Placeholder Image
From Reg Gill, Lafayette County Sheriff Darlington To the editor: Wisconsin has made considerable progress when it comes to encouraging motorists to wear their safety belt every time they travel. Over the last decade, Wisconsin's safety belt use rate has increased from about 74 percent (in 2009) to nearly 90 percent today. While that's encouraging, we still see far too many people who make the dangerous - and frankly - irresponsible decision to not wear a safety belt.
