Being the victim of a drunk-driving accident can happen to even the safest of Minnesota drivers. There is a strong relationship between alcohol and the severity of crashes with alcohol being involved in 6% of minor injury crashes, 11% of moderate injury crashes, 19% of severe injury crashes, and 33% of all fatalities. In 2014, there were 88 drunk-driving deaths on Minnesota roads according to the 2014 Minnesota Motor Vehicle Impaired Driving Facts Report. That number rose to 95 deaths during 2015, approximately 23% of all traffic fatalities. There were more than 25,000 DWI arrests in Minnesota in 2015, with June being the most dangerous month and 55% of all alcohol-related injuries occurring during weekends. Statistics show that one out of every seven licensed drivers in Minnesota has a DWI on their record.
