  • Minnesota State Patrol video presentations
    The Minnesota State Patrol is using three powerful highway safety video presentations to make an impact on teenage drivers. “How to Save a Life,” “Young Forever,” and “Lasting Impact” aim to communicate the seriousness of the life-and-death decisions teens make while driving. The presentations have been so engaging that local television news station FOX 9 broadcast a special report in June 2009 highlighting this State Patrol effort.
    Although the videos are not publicly distributed, Minnesota State Patrol troopers have visited hundreds of schools and other public forums to show the videos and answer questions. Those interested in scheduling a presentation should contact their State Patrol District Office.
