Moorhead police boost speed limit enforcement

MOORHEAD – Police here will be stepping up enforcement of posted speed limits this week in an effort to curb aggressive driving, according to a Moorhead Police Department news release.

Through Friday, additional units will be on the streets looking for speeders, the release said.

The extra enforcement is a part of the countywide “Toward Zero Deaths” traffic safety initiative, which runs through Sept. 30, 2013. The vision of the initiative is to support a goal of zero road fatalities by practicing and promoting safe driving behaviors, the release said.

In Minnesota, an average speeding citation for going 10 mph over the limit is $122, according to the release. Motorists going 20 mph over the limit face double the fine, and those who drive faster than 100 mph can lose their license for six months.
