Hoping for 5 in a row

    Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead for a sober ride New Year’s Eve as Minnesota attempts to make it five years in a row with no drunk driving traffic deaths during the holiday, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) Office of Traffic Safety.
    In the last 10 years, there have been eight drunk driving deaths during the New Year’s holiday; zero in the past four years.
    Many law enforcement agencies statewide will be increasing DWI patrols on New Year’s Eve to encourage smart decisions and enforce the law.
