In 2010, there were approximately 74,000 crashes reported to Public Safety.  Of those crashes, there were 411 deaths on Minnesota road, 8 in Crow Wing County.  The most common factors in 2010 crashes are:  driver inattention/distraction, failure to yield right-of-way, illegal/unsafe speed, and impaired driving.  

Preventing the number of traffic crashes in Minnesota each year remains a challenge for public safety officials.  It is  known the best way to promote safe driving is through education.  Search our site, educate yourself, and spread the word to educate others. 

Driving is a PRIVILEGE; aggressive driving is not.  Buckle up.  Drive at safe speeds.  Put away the phone and other distractions.  Pay attention and NEVER drive impaired.
