Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death in the U.S. for people ages 3-34. It’s important to encourage everyone – drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists – to take extra caution every day and especially on Oct. 10, the day officially designated as Put the Brakes on Fatalities Day.
A winner from northeast Kansas in 2010 was Corissa Bandel, Oskaloosa.
