Marshall State Patrol District DWI Mobilization Seven drunk drivers were cited during the December DWI Mobilization in the Marshall State Patrol district. Most drivers made very good choices by not drinking and driving during the Mobilization. Impaired driving is a choice that costs impaired drivers' thousands of dollars in court-related costs, and the greater possi- bility of becoming involved in a crash that may claim the life of an innocent vic- tim. The statewide campaign was coordinated by the MN Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety. The event was the largest impaired driving enforce- ment effort ever conducted in the state--more than 400 city and county law enforce- ment agencies and the State Patrol participated. Historically, the holiday season is one of the dead- liest periods on MN roads. Last year in MN, alcohol- related crashes accounted for 239 fatalities, or nearly 37 percent of all traffic deaths. Most alcohol-relat- ed crashes involve a single vehicle overturning or a sin- gle vehicle colliding with a Notice to Walnut Grove area subscribers& readers A drop box for various news items is located at the...
