ASK A TROOPER BY JACALYN STICHA Is there still such a thing as a farm license for teens? There is still a restricted farm work license in Minnesota. A 15-year-old may be issued a farm work license but with firm restrictions.

Most people in law enforcement have been in contact with teens using the farm work license improperly; essentially, they are driving without out any license when they are violating the restric- tions of this license. A teen with a farm license may not drive to school, sport- ing events or meet up friends, just to name a few temptations. Parents are strongly urged to consider all the facts and restrictions before allowing their teen to obtain a restricted farm work license and to moni- tor its use very carefully. These teens have little to no formal drivers training or practical experience on the road. The necessity of having a 15-year-old driv- er to assist on the family farm is understood, how- ever, it would be wiser to avoid if there are other options. Remember, the NUMBER ONE cause of death for teens is motor vehicle crashes.

MnDOT reminds public not to push snow on to roads The Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds the public that it is unlawful to deposit snow on or next to a public highway or street. "Improperly placing snow on or near a public road creates hazards includ- ing drainage problems, drifting, sight obstruction and unsafe access," said Craig Gertsema, District 8 maintenance superinten- dent. "Special attention should be made to keep crosswalks, intersections, entrances and exits clean and unobstructed." Minnesota law and many local ordinances prohibit the plowing, blowing, shov- eling or otherwise placing of snow on to public roads. This includes the ditch and right of way area along the roads. Violations are considered misdemeanors, but civil penalties also apply if the placement of snow creates a hazard, such as a slippery area, frozen rat or bump, that contributes to a motor vehicle or pedestrian crash. The civil liability can extend to both the property owner and the person who placed the snow. MnDOT maintenance crews plow and maintain about 12,000 miles of state highways and interstates in Minnesota. District 8 crews are responsible for 2,984 lane miles.
