​Super fans: Troopers head to high schools to spread word about distracted driving

Football and basketball season is underway in Minnesota and that means teen drivers are going to be driving to those games.

To help spread the word about the dangers of distracted driving, our troopers have been hitting the gridiron and the hardwood to launch T-shirts 
into the crowd that remind people to put their phones down and keep their eyes on the road. 

Our five T-shirt launchers are currently available in Rochester, St. Cloud, Brainerd, Detroit Lakes and Virginia areas. If you would like to request a trooper attend your next home event, contact the district at the numbers listed here.
