In our last post, we discussed some of Minnesota’s drunk-driving laws and penalties. Although this topic is relevant at any time of year, it may especially timely this week as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving. Many holidays are associated with a spike in drunk driving rates, and law enforcement agencies across the state will be increasing DWI patrols accordingly.
If you plan on celebrating Thanksgiving (or surrounding days) with alcohol, you should be especially careful when deciding whether or not to get behind the wheel. That being said, there are ways to fight DWI charges if you were unable to avoid them in the first place.
