Nearly 1800 Minnesota DWI Arrests Made During Crackdown

The state Department of Public Safety reports that an 18-day campaign resulted in 1,775 arrests for driving while intoxicated in Minnesota. Between August 20 and September 6 a total of 332 law enforcement agencies across the state conducted the heightened DWI enforcement effort.

2,800 motorists were also ticketed for seat belt violations. The two statistics are relevant, because 75% of alcohol related fatalities involve drivers not wearing a seat belt.

Reportedly, one in seven Minnesota drivers has a DWI arrest on their record.
