Deadly Holiday On MN Roads 03 Jul 13

The Fourth of July has become the deadliest day of the year on Minnesota roads. The State Patrol says that there have been 19 road deaths on Independence Day during the last five years – and 13 of those were drunk-driving related. Lieutenant Eric Roeske says that the State Patrol will have extra troopers on the road for the holiday, but they want to encourage citizens to celebrate in a safe manner. He urges partiers to plan ahead for a sober ride. A DWI offense can result in the loss of your license for up to a year as well as possible jail time.
