Drivers in 15 states – including Minnesota — are being asked to take part in a challenge on Interstate 90 and 94. If you’re driving on the two interstates from Aug. 1 through Aug. 4, expect to see extra patrols.
Officials say Highway Patrol troopers from South Dakota and Minnesota have made 188 arrests and issued 522 warnings during a joint enforcement operation on a stretch of Interstate 90.
On average, nearly 120,000 people are ticketed for speeding in the seven-county metro area each year. We spent months crunching the numbers and discovered your chance of getting caught varies greatly from city to city.
The State Patrol will be out in full force in the next 48 hours for what troopers call “Maroon Day.”
As tough as this winter’s been on Minnesota citizens, it’s been especially rough on the Minnesota State Patrol. So far this winter, more than 30 troopers have been hurt responding to calls.
It seems speedy drivers in Wisconsin caught a break while state troopers were monitoring union rallies at the Capitol.
