Speed patrols planned Saturday through July 21

MOORHEAD – Clay County Law Enforcement Agencies are conducting increased speed patrols Saturday through July 21 to combat a deadly cause of traffic crashes.

Unsafe and illegal speed is the most commonly reported contributing factor in fatal crashes.

From 2010-12, speed was a factor in one fatality in Clay County and 243 traffic deaths statewide.

Clay County Law Enforcement Agencies are conducting “speed weeks,” extra speed enforcement and education efforts, through Sept. 30 as part of the Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety Toward Zero Deaths traffic safety initiative.
