Extra DWI Patrols on Minnesota Roads Through Labor Day
August 19, 2022
Extra DWI patrols will be on Minnesota roads beginning Friday, August 19th and running through Labor Day.
Law enforcement will be looking for drivers who appear impaired, whether by alcohol or other substances.
Driving while impaired by any substance is illegal. Drugged driving incidents are on the rise, and it’s a growing concern for Minnesota law enforcement. So far, more than 16,000 people have been arrested this year for driving while impaired.
Troopers, deputies, and officers will be participating in this DWI enforcement campaign with extra patrols, awareness, and education. During the last five summers, 203 people died in drunk driving-related crashes.
