Ten Minnesota State Patrol vehicles have been hit by passing motorists so far in the month of February alone. Of those nine crashes, five involved injuries.

When we're behind the wheel we need to pay attention at all times. A trooper's office is the highway, and we need your help to keep officers and other motorists safe.

And then there's the law; move over if you can when you see flashing lights. If it is unsafe to move over, slow down significantly.

State Patrol dispatchers answered 20,337 calls statewide between midnight February 4th and midnight February 10th. That’s an average of 121 calls per hour for the week! Thank you for all you do to protect us crazy Minnesotans!
