Over 90% seat belt use in Wisconsin Submitted: 08/21/2019
Wisconsin Dells - Gov. Tony Evers announced this morning that Wisconsin's seat belt use has reached over 90 percent.

Evers addressed over 400 people working in road safety at today's annual Governor's Conference on Highway Safety in Wisconsin Dells. This year is the 10-year anniversary of the state's primary seat belt law.

Wisconsin is finally catching up to other Midwest states where seat belt use rates are already above 90%.

Wisconsin's primary seat belt law allows police to stop and cite motorists solely for not being buckled up.
