ST. PAUL (KDLM) - Beginning Wednesday, there’ll be a month-long law enforcement campaign to crackdown on speeding on Minnesota roads.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says the campaign will be carried out by sheriff’s deputies and state troopers, lasting until July 21.
The deadliest time of year on Minnesota roads is between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Last year, 113 people died in speed-related fatalities on Minnesota roadways.
Drivers can expected to pay over $100 for traveling 10 mph over the speed limit. Fines double for those going 20 mph over.
