Thousands of motorcyclists will kick off the unofficial start of the Minnesota riding season during the “Spring Flood Run” Saturday, April 21. The route takes riders along the scenic Mississippi and St. Croix Valley roadways between the Twin Cities and Winona. Motorists will need to use extra caution this weekend with as many as 30,000 motorcyclists riding between the Twin Cities and Winona for the event. Motorcyclists and motorists can work together to make the Spring Flood Run a safe event. Riders should take safety into their own hands and motorists are encouraged to always look twice for motorcycles.

We love our dispatchers!

Today kicks off a three-week increased enforcement for ‘texting while driving’ occurring statewide. Don’t be surprised if you see more officers out looking for those who are distracted while behind the wheel. Put the phone down and arrive alive!

If your friends text while driving, tell them to stop. If your passengers catch you texting while driving and tell you to put your phone away, put it down. No one likes to be called out by a friend for doing something wrong, but it’s even worse to get caught by law enforcement and end up paying a fine. Remember, when you get behind the wheel, put your phone away. U Drive. U Text. U Pay.

Don’t Rely on the Luck o’ the Irish Remember This One Life-Saving Rule: Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving. Don’t Do It.

St. Patrick’s Day is one of the deadliest holidays on the road our nation’s roads. During the 2012-2016 St. Patrick’s Day holiday period (6 p.m. March 16 to 5:59 a.m. March 18), 269 lives were lost due in drunk-driving crashes. In 2016, drunk driving killed more than 10,000 people in our country, and every single one of those deaths was preventable.
