Scott County Sheriff's Office Press Releases

[ARCHIVED] Increased Traffic Enforcement on Highway 13

As our children return to school, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, Prior Lake Police Department, and Minnesota State Patrol will be stepping up safety patrols along Highway 13, between County Road 21 and County Road 42, as a coordinated effort to address the ongoing problem of drivers misusing turn lanes as bypass lanes, which can cause dangerous encounters with people crossing at intersections as well as vehicles traveling in the area.


“Community members have expressed much concern about motorists violating traffic laws on this stretch of roadway,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen.  “We are hopeful that this collaborative safety initiative will encourage positive changes in driver behavior.”


Between September 3rd and September 16th, extra enforcement and digital message signs will be utilized along this route in an effort to keep everyone safe as we transition from summer into our back-to-school routines. 


“This is a good time to take a look at your own driving habits and review the rules of the road,” added Sheriff Hennen.  “Whether you have kids in school or not, be ready to adjust your schedule to accommodate the traffic slowdowns that occur when school is in session.”
