Minn. goes for no DWI deaths on New Year's Eve
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Public safety officials are aiming for the fifth consecutive year with no drunken-driving deaths in Minnesota on New Year's Eve.
In the past 10 years there have been eight drunken-driving deaths in Minnesota during the New Year's holiday, but none in the past four years.
Although drunken-driving incidents are down in recent years, officials say New Year's Eve still can be a dangerous night on Minnesota roads.
Officials are urging party-goers to plan a safe ride home on New Year's Eve and throughout the New Year.
Many law enforcement agencies statewide will be stepping up DWI patrols on New Year's Eve.
