Minnesota Department of Public Safety officials say the number of alcohol-related deaths in the state last year was the lowest on record. The data shows that 131 motorists died in alcohol-related crashes in Minnesota last year. That’s 21% lower than the number five years ago. The decrease is credited to better driver decisions, enhanced enforcement and education campaigns. The 131 alcohol-related deaths accounted for one-third of the 411 total traffic deaths.
