The State of Minnesota has started a Speeding Crackdown now through July 23rd.

If you tend to be a little heavy on the accelerator chances are pretty good you will get caught. According to WDIO over 300 Minnesota agencies are involved in the campaign. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety reported that 92 people died due to speed related crashes in 2016, which was an 18% increase from 2015.

A study from AAA found that 45% of teens and motorists between the age of 35-55 have driven at least 15 miles over the speed limit on the highway. I admit that I am guilty of speeding on occasion and it is something that myself and everyone should keep in mind all the time, not just during campaigns like this one.
