Clay County cites 251 for speeding in July

Clay County law enforcement agencies cited 251 motorists for speeding in July during a statewide speed-enforcement campaign.

Speeding is the most commonly reported factor in fatal crashes. Each year in Minnesota, speed contributes to more than 100 traffic deaths and 300 life-altering, serious injuries.

In Clay County, a typical 10-mph-over-the-limit speeding ticket can cost $125.

Police departments from Moorhead, Dilworth, Glyndon and Hawley and the Clay County Sheriff’s Department participated in the campaign administered by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
