A common winter mistake Minnesota drivers make is the focus of Eden Prairie patrol officers this month.

The Eden Prairie Police Department said its officers are focused on obstructed vision during January as part of its "Focus In" campaign.

“During the winter months, motorists are often in a hurry and fail to take the proper time to clear their windshield of snow or frost,” said Sgt. Scott Kuyper, who oversees the campaign.

During last January's campaign, officers gave out 53 warnings.

In upcoming months, police will “Focus In” on unsafe equipment, failure to display headlights, bike safety, curfew violations, pedestrian safety, child and seatbelt safety, school bus stop arm protocol, speed in school zones, night and snow parking, and the “move over” law.
