Drive sober, drive smart as extra DWI patrols are out to keep people safe

There is no Labor Day sale on legal fees. Drive sober. Drive smart. Extra enforcement now.

​​Labor Day is fast approaching, but your summertime fun isn’t over quite yet!​

Get out there and grill, swim, camp, boat – whatever you enjoy! Just remember, if you feel different because of alcohol or any other impairing substance, don’t drive.

Impaired is impaired, and it doesn’t just mean drinking alcohol and driving, it also includes drugs — legal or illegal.

There’s extra DWI enforcement on Minnesota roads​ through Sept. 5. Plan ahead for a safe ride.​


Minnesota School Safety Center keeps our kids safe by preparing for the worst

Lockers in a school hallwayAs Minnesota's kids go back to school, the Minnesota School Safety Center (MnSSC) is working with districts to keep them safe from a variety of hazards.

Youth Experiencing Homelessness can still get a no-cost Minnesota ID

Text: No-cost Minnesota ID Card for Youth Experiencing Homelessness. Examples of vertical and horizontal ID cards

You never realize how often you need an ID until you don't have one. Even if you don't drive and don't need a driver's license, you need government-issued identification to apply for a job, purchase certain cold medicines or open a bank account.

For youth experiencing homelessness, getting that ID can be tricky. That's why our Driver and Vehicle Services division (DVS) can help those kids get that card into their hands. The best part: they don't have to pay for it.

If you know someone under 24 who doesn't have a fixed residence and needs an ID, you can help them get a standard Minnesota ID card as part of a program designed to help youth experiencing homelessness.
