Snowmobiling Deaths Are Usually Speed/Alcohol Related

This AP story, perhaps edited by the Waukesha Freeman, manages to state that snowmobiling deaths are escalating this winter, but leaves out any discussion of the traditional, and preventable causes: speed and alcohol.

Instead, it credits a 55 mph nightime speed limit for keeping the number of fatalities down, given this winter's big snowfall.

Wierd reporting, or editing,

Alcohol could be the cause of snowmobile driving accidents. Even on the road, alcohol-related incidents like drunk driving, still can't be totally stopped. This is because of some drivers who just don't know how to discipline themselves.
