This could be the biggest travel weekend in Minnesota of the year and the Minnesota State Patrol will be out in full force looking for a variety of infractions that may endanger travelers.

First off, and I can't believe this is even still an issue, no texting while driving. The State Patrol will be watching for texters, so do yourself and everyone else on the road and don't text and drive. A few seconds with your eyes off the road could be your last.

The State Patrol will also be cracking down on speeders. Speeding on Minnesota roads has been out of control this year and the speed related fatalities have been well above the average.

Again, I don't know why we have to keep saying this but DON'T drink and drive. You can believe that the State Patrol will be pretty vigilant on those that chose to drink and drive.  Bad things can happen.  Nobody wants to deal with getting a DUI and that's the least of the bad things that can happen when you're liquored up behind the wheel. God forbid you injure or kill someone.

As always remember, DON'T BE A LOSER, DON'T BE A LEFT LANE CRUISER!  Just when I think that some people are finally getting the left lane rule, things seem to revert right back to a steady stream of left lane cruisers. Left lane is for passing only. Pass and then just get back in the right lane.  Simple, right?

Have a safe and fun weekend with family and friends and try to end the weekend without blowing off any of your digits.
