Spring: Warmer Weather And Higher Speeds

Comments Off

It’s real nice to see the 70’s back for temperatures in Minnesota. It’s great to see the grass greening up and no more mounds of snow taking up parking spaces.

As with bed weather, it’s important that everyone SLOW DOWN. At a time when the number of overall road deaths is decreasing these sudden rises in horrible loses should be heeded.

My partner, Joe Crumley, addressed this topic in a recent article for the Minnesota Lawyers Trial magazine. I was interviewed last year on the same topic. In this case, sorrow for the families of those involved goes out.
