Enhanced speed patrols, coordinated by the DPS Office of Traffic Safety, State Patrol and the Minnesota Department of Transportation will continue in select traffic areas through. September. "Many motorists fail to see the dangers in speeding and don't understand its deadly consequences," says State Patrol Lt. John Ebner. "This campaign focuses on educat- ing drivers that when your speed increases, so does your risk of crashing." DPS reports illegal and unsafe speeding factored in at least 86 deaths in 2010 -- 65 percent occurred in rural areas. The highest speeds record- ed that resulted in a ticket during the July enforcement were: 135 mph (Benson Police); 118 mph (Swirl County Sheriff's Office); 110 mph (Fridley Police); 107 mph (St. Louis County Sheriff's Office); 106 mph (Blaine Police and Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office); 105 mph (Anoka, Marshall, Norman and Washington county sheriff's offices). The average cost of a speeding ticket in Minnesota is around $120 for 10 miles over the limit. Motorists stopped at 20 mph over the speed limit face double the fine, and those ticketed trav- eling more than 100 mph can lose their license for six months. The 12-month speed cam- paign targets specific "prob- lem" corridors in many parts of the state that have high numbers of deaths, serious injuries, DWI arrests, and speed and distracted driving- related crashes. The speed enforcement includes a focus on aggressive driving behav- ior, such as tailgating, abrupt lane changes and red light running. Ebner also cautions motorists to pass carefully, especially on two-lane rural roads on which most of the state's fatal crashes occur. DPS reports the dangers of speeding include greater potential for loss of vehicle control; increased stopping distance; less time available for driver response for crash avoidance; and increased crash severity. Motorists should keep at least a three- second following distance, as it takes more than the length of a football field to stop when traveling at 60 miles per hour. Speed enforcement and education is a component Minnesota's core traffic safe- ty initiative, Toward Zero Deaths (TZD). A primary vision of the TZD program is to create a safe driving cul- ture in Minnesota in which motorists support a goal of zero road fatalities by prac- ticing and promoting safe and smart driving behavior. TZD focuses on the application of four strategic areas to reduce crashes education, enforcement, engineering and emergency trauma response. To-date in Minnesota in 2011, there has been 194 traf- fic deaths, compared to 229 at this time in 2010. -~ ~ ~i~i 5*- 59/36 63/39 Times of sun Sunshine. and clouds.

TROOPER KATHY BY KATHY PEDERSON Dear Trooper Kathy: My son is on School patrol and I would really appreciate it if you could remind every- one to watch out for the school patrol. Thanks Trooper Kathy Says: Here is what you should know: Some key. safety points to discuss with your child regarding their commute to and from school: 1. All people crossing dur- ing guard hours should wait for the guards to direct them across the intersection. 2. Students riding bikes must get off their bikes and walk it across the intersec- tion when directed to do so by the guards. If they fail to do this, they give up their pedestrian rights. 3. In areas where there is a crossing guard nearby, stu- dents should cross the street at the locations of the guards rather than crossing at an unguarded location. 4. Please remind students, to be courteous and respect- - ful of the guards as they are taking time out of their days to help keep them safe. Attention Vehicle Operators: When driving in areas of schools and crossing guardS, please be alert and aware of CLASSIFIED ADS CALL 274-6136 OR I -800-410- 1859 your surroundings. The chil- dren of our community are very important to us and we want to keep them safe! The guards have very visible STOP signs which you are required to obey. You can be charged with a crime if you violate the stop sign. SCHOOL PATROL PROCEDURES: School Patrol students are usually 4th, 5th,or 6th grade. The State Patrol has the authority by statute to train these young folks, but many school liaison officers have assisted in recent years. Anyway, the students are instructed to stand at least one step back from the curb in the Attention Position, holding the flag with their right hand, and resting the pole on their right foot. When there is a lull in traffic, they are to raise the flag straight up for at least 4 seconds while checking traffic in all directions. This is called the Alert Position. As a motorist, you should be watching for this! (Slow down and prepare to stop!) The flags are a bright orange or lime green color. They have a colored stop sign printed on them, so you can't miss them!

Vehicles must not violate this flag. Students then cross in the crosswalk behind the flag. School Patrol members then return to the attention posi- tion one step back from the curb and remain there until the next group of students needs to cross. You should see the same school patrol procedures in Rochester or Albert Lea as you do in Marshall. There should be statewide unifor- mity in the operation of our school patrols. Almost 2000 students attend Legionville camp near Brainerd every summer to have School Patrol training and other safety training. Please watch out for these young folks, and slow down near schools and school buses as well.

Pederson will not offer advice on specific situations or real events, which involve law enforce- ment.
