Spring is here, so expect robins, melting snow and ... speeders.

Warmer temperatures bring more speeding complaints, according to Lt. Steve Todd, patrol division commander with the Clay County Sheriff's Department.

To head off problems, the Sheriff's Department is asking county residents to help it decide the best spots to set up special enforcement and education efforts.

This week, the department began having volunteers set up radar stations around the county to clock speeding vehicles and send warning letters to the registered owners.

In April, deputies will be working special details in many of the same areas, but they will be handing violators actual tickets.

Residents who want a specific area targeted can call Todd at (218) 299-7511 or e-mail him at steven.todd@co.clay.mn.us .

Requests should provide the location, days of the week and time of day residents believe the extra attention would be most beneficial.
