Temporary signs and traffic barrels will be placed in Dakota County to remind drivers about the dangers of illegally passing on the shoulders of roads.
The signs and barrels will go up on 185th St. W (County Road 60) at Jaguar Path the week of June 4. They will remain up for about a week.
Police in Lakeville are also increasing enforcement to emphasize to motorists that passing on the shoulder is neither legal nor safe. Passing on the shoulder is dangerous for pedestrians and traffic turning onto side roads. Dakota County and the city of Lakeville are working together to increase awareness and public safety.
