The Minnesota State Patrol is asking drivers in the state to do their part in making sure hospital beds are available for those dealing with COVID-19.

Troopers have received increased reports of aggressive driving and excessive speeding recently.

Col. Matt Langer is asking drivers to make better decisions when driving.

"COVID-19 is not a license to speed, drive impaired, or make other poor decisions behind the wheel," he said in a statement.
