Hwy 169 Saturation Today 02 Nov 12

The Minnesota State Patrol is conducting a statewide saturation on Highway 169 today (FRI). Troopers in the St. Peter and Mankato areas will be working with other districts to conduct high-visibility patrols during the high-traffic deer hunting opener. Sheriff’s offices and local police are partners in the “Operation Blaze Orange” saturation effort. The “line patrol” style of enforcement being used is designed to remind motorists to slow down, buckle up, drive sober and take personal responsibility for their own actions behind the wheel.
