Patrol adds unmarked cars to fight distracted driving
ST. PAUL -- Distracted drivers attract the full attention of the Minnesota State Patrol.
Five new unmarked cars were added to the patrol fleet Monday so troopers can better find distracted drivers, such as those using mobile telephones and not paying as much attention to the roads as they should. Patrol officials say the unmarked cars will help save lives and protect motorists.
"Admittedly, it allows us to be a little bit more sneaky while we are on patrol," Patrol Chief Col. Matt Langer said Monday.
