There are some parts of the area where law enforcement is seeing an increase in accidents. Troy Christianson is with the Minnesota State Patrol.

“We have started to see an increase in intersection-related crashes on Highway 13 and Highway 19. It’s all intersection related so we encourage all motorists to take caution, especially in those areas.”

Christianson encourages persons to use caution during the winter weather season. Christianson says persons should reduce speed and not use cruise control. He says a lot of it is planning ahead to allow yourself ample time to get to your destination.
