Brainerd and Nisswa police officers, armed with radar, ticketed 21 speeding drivers during the Safe and Sober enhanced enforcement campaign Aug. 27-Sept. 4.
The speed-targeted campaign was coordinated by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety and included participation from more than 200 law enforcement agencies.
"Speed limits are posted for a reason," said Brainerd Police Sgt. David Holtz. "They're to be obeyed, not tested."
Brainerd and Nisswa officers assigned to this project stopped 107 vehicles. Sixty-six warnings were issued, as well as 30 tickets for violations other than speeding.
The Safe and Sober campaign is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is designed to reduce traffic crashes and injuries through education and enforcement.
