“Thank you” for putting others first by choosing not to drive drunk.That’s the message by law enforcement, establishments and Minnesotans to those making the right choice this holiday season. The “thank you” is part of the Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety holiday campaign to get more people to join the crowd and find a sober ride after consuming alcohol.For people who decide to drive impaired, law enforcement will be watching. Officers, deputies and troopers from more than 300 agencies across the state are conducting extra DWI enforcement patrols during weekends through Dec. 30.
Attitudes toward drunk driving are changing for the better among Minnesotans as fewer drunk driving-related deaths are occurring across the state. The new 2015 Minnesota Motor Vehicle Impaired Driving Facts report highlights encouraging trends in areas such as fatalities, DWIs and repeat offenders.
