By Pat Sunderland
A new study on seat belt usage conducted for the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) reveals that 85.2 percent of the state's roadway users are buckling up. But a team of trained observers estimated the usage rate in Delta County at just 70.8 percent. Baca, a rural county in the eastern plains, had the lowest usage rate of 67.1 percent.
