Minnesota traffic fatalities dropped to 361 last year, the lowest since World War II when 356 people lost their lives in 1944. In addition, traffic fatalities are down 66 percent since 1968 when Minnesota reached an all-time record of 1,060 deaths.
Take the time to call 811 before you dig or place a sign in the ground. Call 811 first so you don’t have to call 911 later. Or go to the GSOC website at www.gopherstateonecall.org and request underground utilities near the area you’re digging be marked.
The way driver's licenses and identification cards are invalidated is changing in Minnesota. Starting July 6, Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services will be perforating the word "VOID" on the left side of the card by the photo instead of clipping the bottom right corner.
The new method of invalidating driver's licenses and ID cards makes Minnesota compliant with federal law. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's Commercial Driver's License Standards says a document perforated with word VOID is considered invalidated. All Minnesota cards will be processed this way, not just commercial driver's licenses, to reduce errors.
