During weekends this holiday season, more than 300 law enforcement agencies will be out on Minnesota roads looking for drunk drivers. The statewide enforcement involves police departments, sheriff’s offices and the State Patrol. Officers, deputies and troopers. DWI consequences include loss of driver’s license for up to a year, thousands of dollars in costs and possible jail time. Plan for a safe ride; designate a sober driver, use a cab, public transportation or stay at the location of the celebration.
