(westernkansasnews.com) Twelve years ago only 61 percent of Kansas drivers were wearing their seatbelts. KDOT released new numbers yesterday that the state reached an all-time high 86 percent seat belt usage. Still with all the good news KDOT spokesman Kirk Hutchinson says we are having a hard time reducing fatalities.

 

The question is why?

Hutchinson believes all drivers need to be flexible at responding to changing elements even if they drive the same road everyday.
