Redgranite man struck by SUV while operating lawn mower in street

Far to our east in Redgranite a community is grieving this month for the loss of an 81-year-old local man who lost his life just days ago in a tragic accident involving another vehicle. Police say that the man appears to have been abiding by all traffic laws just prior to the accident-a fact that unfortunately did not prevent him from being involved in the fatal crash.
The man had just left his home and was on his way to a family member's house to cut their grass. The man was driving his riding lawn mower in the shoulder, making the 10-block trip to the family member's house, when he slowly began drifting to his left into traffic. It's at this point that he was hit by an SUV driven by a 56-year-old Milwaukee man.

Study finds your designated driver may be just as impaired as you

We've all heard the familiar phrase: don't drink and drive. For most of us here in Wisconsin, this is a common sense statement that needs no preface. Another common phrase encourages us to drive responsibly and find a designated driver. Seems simple enough. But according to a new study, about 40 percent of designated drivers consume at least some amount of alcohol before getting behind the wheel of a car. Furthermore, one-fifth of them may have been just as impaired as the people they were supposed to be bringing home safely.
