Got Your DWI Yet?

Believe it or nor not, one in seven Minnesota drivers as a DWI on his or her driving record. According to the Minnesota Office of Traffic Safety, in 2009 (the year for which they have the most complete statistics) 32,756 motorists were arrested for Drunk Driving while driving on the highways and byway through out the state.. Do the math... that means that on any given day - 90 Minnesota drivers are cited for Driving Drunk.  Of those individuals, 41%  of them already have at least on "prior" Drunk Driving conviction on their record. 

To many, these numbers point to only one conclusion - that we, as a society, have a problem.  As such, the call has gone out to: (a.) the police to beef-up their DWI enforcement efforts; (b.) the legislature to increase the penalties associated with a Drunk Driving conviction; and, (c.) the citizenry - to call out other drivers and report them to the government.  

With these sorts of efforts and tactics in place - if you choose to drive drunk - it’s probably only a matter of time before your are caught. If you, or someone you love has been arrested for DWI, you need to have an experienced Minnesota DWI Attorney on your side. Not only can he serve as a big relief in a situation where it seems like no one is on your side, he can also fight for you, your rights, your wallet and your future. 

Make the next, right move - contact an attorney and take advantage of their free consultation offer to discuss the details of your case. Before you make a decision that will most assuredly impact your future - and that of your loved ones - learn about the options available to you.
