While most Minnesotans understand that seat belts and child restraints save lives, thousands of drivers were cited not buckling up during the Click It or Ticket extra enforcement campaign from May 23 – June 5. Law enforcement handed out 7,233 seat belt and 213 child restraint citations to those who risk losing their own lives or others in the car. Among the violations, a 4-year-old riding on his mother’s lap and helping steer the vehicle. More information is available in our recent news release.
This spring, you might be planning to install a new mail box or plant a tree on your property. Before you do any digging, be sure to call Gopher State One Call (GSOC). Call 811 first so you don’t have to call 911 later. Or go to the GSOC website to submit a request online for underground utilities to be marked in the area where you’ll be digging.
