White Earth council passes seat-belt law
The White Earth Tribal Council recently approved a primary seat-belt law that allows police to stop and cite White Earth residents who aren't wearing seat belts.
The White Earth Indian Reservation overlaps parts of Becker, Clearwater and Mahnomen counties. Between 2004 and 2006 in these counties, 11 of the 21 vehicle occupants killed in traffic crashes were not wearing seat belts.
