Bemidji Pioneer: How fast do you have to go to get a ticket on MN highways?


August 14, 2017

ST. PAUL — A rule of thumb for many drivers is that's it's safe — at least for speeding tickets — to go 5 mph over the limit, and often safe to go as much as 10 mph over.

At least on Minnesota highways, that's almost entirely true. Out of more than 230,000 tickets the State Patrol has written since 2013, only 37 were for less than 5 mph over the limit. Tickets for speeders going between 5 and 10 mph over were more common, but still rare: nearly 97 percent of all ticketed drivers were going faster than 10 mph.
