Brown on the Air: TRAFFIC TICKETS

I divulge one of my poor personal habits this Saturday: lead foot. The topic for this week’s Saturday morning talk/music program “Between You and Me” on 91.7 KAXE deals with “traffic tickets.” My contribution joins the chorus of unique northern Minnesota voices that make this show a special treat for anyone who loves the north woods and its unusual people.

This week host Heidi Holtan will be leading a discussion about moving violations, the sort of things that lead to the traffic tickets that some of us — maybe even me — might have accumulated over the years. She’ll have some guests with some very funny, outrageous stories and representatives of Minnesota’s law enforcement community as well. My bit includes talk of how speeding comes natural to the overscheduled, and how difficult it is to maintain the anonymity of speeding when you know the cops.

“Between You and Me” airs Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon on 91.7 FM in northern Minnesota or streaming live all over the world at I am one of several contributors who join other regular folks in exploring, expanding and showcasing our unique Minnesota culture in a fun, sometimes unforgettable way.


  1. Driving through small towns late at night for a living, I actually have lost count of the number of tickets I have. Ouch!

    It is worse now too that the local gov’s can keep the fine money if they do their own prosecutions. I’d love a study of this.

    Have a good show.
