Got a lead foot? Think you can talk yourself out of a ticket? Well, the Minnesota State Patrol has apparently heard it all, and troopers are not afraid to share.
With an extra speed enforcement campaign underway throughout Minnesota this month, the State Patrol is not only cracking down but sharing interactions with Minnesota speeders via Twitter.
It's all part of the campaign to step up enforcement of speed limits. More than 300 law enforcement agencies are participating across the state through July 26.
Officials shared earlier in the week that drivers tend to speed in the summer, and fast, unsafe driving is one of the leading causes of fatalities on Minnesota roadways.
Already this year, Minnesota has had 187 traffic fatalities, compared to 158 last year.
Earlier this week, a 16-year-old Waconia High School softball player was killed in a deadly rollover.
Typically the summer months are the deadliest on state roads, averaging 28 fatalities over those 100 days. On average, one in five fatal crashes is caused by excess speed, officials say.
