Extra Speed Enforcement Hits the Road this Weekend 06 Jul 17

Law enforcement agencies are showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to speeding.

Bruce Gordon with the Department of Public Safety says a new campaign, beginning this weekend, will have law enforcement cracking down on speeding across the state.

The Department of Public Safety says speed was a factor in 92 fatalities on Minnesota roads in 2016, an 18% increase from 2015.

The stepped up enforcement campaign begins Friday and runs through July 23rd.
