Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over
Officials said Tuesday about 1,300 people have been arrested for driving drunk so far this month across the state, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.
More than 1,800 motorists were arrested for DWI during the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign from Aug. 17 to Sept. 3, officials announced Thursday.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety released a report Thursday which shows that 68 percent of fatal accidents last year involved drivers who had blood alcohol levels of at least .16, which is twice the legal limit for driving.
Authorities in the Fargo-Moorhead area are dedicating a DUI crackdown to a family killed in a July wreck. The Forum reports that relatives of the Deutscher family urged an end to drinking and driving Monday and called for stiffer penalties for offenders.
At least 232 motorists have been arrested for DWI in the first weekend of Minnesota’s statewide DWI crackdown, according to preliminary reports from the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) Office of Traffic Safety.
