More State Patrol officers will likely be seen Monday on Minnesota roads. The State Patrol says it’s increasing enforcement of the state’s “move over” law.
The Minnesota State Patrol is reminding motorists to move over if they see an emergency vehicle on the side of the road. Authorities are issuing the reminder in honor of state Trooper Ted Foss, who was making a traffic stop on Interstate 90 in Winona when he was hit by a passing vehicle and killed 13 years ago.
The Minnesota State Patrol is urging motorists to move over following the Jan. 17 crash where a state trooper was struck by a vehicle while assisting a motorist on Interstate 35W near Forest Lake.
