(AP) Nebraska authorities are urging motorists to obey traffic safety laws after six fatalities were reported on state roadways over a four-day period.

The Nebraska State Patrol says the fatal crashes occurred between Friday and Monday in four counties.

Four of the six crashes involved single-vehicle rollovers. Of those crashes, at least three people killed were not wearing seat belts.

Col. David Sankey, patrol superintendent, says the number of fatalities over a short period should be a wake-up call for motorists.

Eight people have died on Nebraska roads since the beginning of the year. Twelve fatalities were reported at this same time last year.
