Despite significant reductions in DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) deaths in recent years, 2009 had the lowest alcohol-related death count on record—141. Impaired driving still accounts for one-third of all traffic deaths annually in Minnesota. Each year, more than 400 people are killed on the roads and one-third of those deaths are alcohol-related. Annually more than 30,000 motorists are arrested for DWI. That equates to one in seven Minnesota drivers with a DWI on their driving record.
