Troopers of the Detroit Lakes and Thief River Falls districts of the Minnesota State Patrol will be out to tackle drunk drivers over the Super Bowl weekend.


"We are encouraging Super Bowl revelers to plan for sober rides and avoid driving impaired, its dangers and consequences," says Trooper Andy Schmidt.

Over Super Bowl weekends in 2006-2008, alcohol-related crashes accounted for five of the seven motorists killed -- and 1,470 motorists were arrested for DWI.
