New Unmarked State Patrol Cars to Catch Distracted Drivers

Video Description: Seventeen-year-old Kianna Stewart of Red Wing, who fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed her vehicle in August, believes she would not be alive today had she decided not to buckle up. “A seat belt is a decision that could save your life. If I wasn’t wearing mine, I don’t think I would be here to tell people to put one on,” said Stewart. “This wouldn’t have ended the way it did. I don’t think I would’ve had a chance to survive. I would have been rolled over by my car if I wasn’t kept in by my seat belt.”
