Extra Weekend Police Patrols 05 Jul 13

There will be extra law enforcement on the state’s roads through the weekend. Summer is typically the deadliest time of year for Minnesota motorists, mainly because of increased travel and more people celebrating, often with alcohol. Nineteen people have died on Minnesota roads over the last five years on the 4th – and 13 of those deaths have been alcohol related. Authorities are urging motorists to plan ahead for a sober ride.
