ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - The Minnesota State Patrol and 400 other law enforcement agencies around the state are ramping up their efforts to catch speeders. Unsafe and illegal speed is the most commonly reported contributing factor to fatal crashes in the state resulting in over 250 deaths in the last two years. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety remind motorists that the typical citation for speeding up to ten miles per hour over the limit is 120 dollars and those stopped at 20 mph over can double that. Last July, a similar speeding crackdown saw nearly 20 thousand motorists cited for driving over the limit and 21 of those were driving over 100 miles per hour.
