"DWI enforcement is so important to keeping roads safe, but there is also a huge responsibility of motorists not to take the risk of driving impaired," says Deputy Siefkes. "The best advice is to always plan ahead for a safe ride so you don't find yourself in a situation where you get behind the wheel after drinking." Halloween has become one of the biggest party nights of the year. During Minnesota Halloween party weekends 2006-2008, seven of the 15 traffic deaths were alcohol-related. Another 40 people were seriously injured in crashes -- 15 were alco- hol-related. During this peri- od, 1,487 motorists were arrested for DWI. In 2008-2010 in Redwood County, there were 3 alcohol: related deaths and 6 alcohol- related serious injuries, cost- ing the county $1,691,600. Last year, 95 impaired driv- ers were arrested for DWI in the county. In Minnesota dur- ing this same period, alcohol- related crashes resulted in 131 deaths and 2,485 injuries -- and 29,918 motorists were arrested for DWI. The enforcement effort is a component of the state's Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) initiative. TZD is the state's cornerstone traffic safety program that employs a mul- tidisciplinary approach to address traffic safety issues through enhanced enforce- ment, education efforts, improved engineering and efficient emergency trauma response. The RFPD and the RCSO will participate in additional enforcement aJid education campaigns during 2012 to target seat belt use, speeding, and impaired driv- ing.
