Over 2,500 DWI arrests statewide in December

Email

A December-long statewide DWI enforcement effort resulted in 2,655 DWI arrests.

The average alcohol-concentration of the DWI offenders was 0.14 -- nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08. Preliminary arrest totals were reported by 331 of around 400 participating agencies. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) coordinated the effort.

A DWI can cost up to $20,000 when factoring in associated fees and increased insurance rates.
