Deaths arising from motor vehicle collisions are increasing. Some government officials blame that growth on “smartphones and other driving distractions,” including increased driving among “risky drivers.” Check out the Duluth News Tribune article here: http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news/3890160-smartphones-may-have-role-rise-traffic-deaths

Minnesota does not currently ban the use of hand-held phones (smart and otherwise), but maybe that’s going to change soon.

Drive safe this holiday weekend and beware of “risky drivers.”
