International Falls - Minnesota State Patrol Sergeant Neil Dickenson joined The Morning Show, Tuesday, to review the Patrol's Hands-Free Driving campaign on its one-year anniversary, entering the back-to school season, and winter preparedness precautions. With officers accepting overtime detail, over one thousand citations were handed out in a two-week period.
Although schools will be returning to a hybrid, non-traditional semester, buses will be out and about as normal. Sgt. Dickenson reminds drivers that school bus arm violations are being enforced, and come with a hefty fine.
The amber flashing lights on buses are not the only to keep an eye out for, Dickenson explains.
With Labor Day approaching, there will be an increased presence in an attempt to crack down on intoxicated drivers.
