Police across the state of Wisconsin are focusing their efforts on the prevention of drunken driving in the month of December.
According to the Department of Transportation, last December in Wisconsin there were 13,000 car accidents that resulted in 3,800 injuries with 37 of those being fatalities. The holiday season accompanied with hazardous driving conditions increases the chances of accidents in Wisconsin.
Wearing a seat belt is a simple, yet critical factor to preventing unnecessary injuries in an accident. Last year in Wisconsin more than 120,000 people were given citations for not wearing a seat belt while traveling in a motor vehicle.
