Manitoba Public Insurance says an average of 31 people die each
year die in crashes as a result of not wearing seatbelts.

And police in the province are planning an enforcement campaign
to raise awareness of the danger.

M-P-I says between 2005 to 2009, 156 people were killed on
Manitoba roads who weren't buckled up.

Overall, Manitoba's seatbelt usage rate is sixth place in Canada.
