Speed-related fatalities last year climbed above 100 for the first time since 2008. Mike Hanson with the Office of Traffic Safety:
“We will not enforce our way out of the problems that we have on Minnesota roads right now. It’s going to take everybody working together and making good decisions, getting that voluntary compliance, that will get us to our target of zero deaths.”
To help put the brakes on speed-related deaths, officers, deputies, and troopers will work overtime shifts starting Tuesday through July 21st.
