SD, MN Troopers Team Up On I-90

SD, MN Troopers Team Up On I-90
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Troopers from the Minnesota and South Dakota Highway Patrol hit Interstate 90 Thursday morning as part of a joint effort to reduce crime and crashes.

They're focusing on the stretch between Mitchell, SD, and Worthington, MN, until 11 p.m. Thursday to enforce seat belt use, speeding, drinking and driving and other highway laws.  The Motor Carrier Division will also do truck inspections.

The departments hope by working together, they can encourage safe driving.

"By teaming up our forces we can accomplish so much more on the I-90 corridor in the name of Public Safety," Capt. Kevin Joffer, commander of the South Dakota Highway Patrol's Sioux Falls district, said in a statement.  "If the presence of additional troopers encourages motorists to make safe choices, that's the best outcome.''

"Sadly, 368 lives were lost on Minnesota roads in 2011. We're teaming up on this joint enforcement, so families and communities do not have to go through the pain of a preventable tragedy," Capt. Brian West, Minnesota State Patrol, said in a statement. "Stopping speeding, impaired, distracted and unbelted drivers are preventative measures to ensure safety on Minnesota and South Dakota roads."
