Minnesota committee OKs classes instead of fines for minor traffic violations
ST. PAUL -- Local Minnesota governments could offer classes instead of fines to drivers ticketed for minor traffic violations, a House transportation committee decided Tuesday.
On a unanimous vote, the committee approved a bill by Rep. Jay McNamar, D-Elbow Lake, to let cities and counties establish driving safety classes that violators could take instead of a traffic ticket being placed on their records.
“It's just a great way to keep the streets safe,” McNamar said.
