Extra DWI Enforcement December 1–17 — Crackdowns Are Saving Lives
The Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) knows your efforts are extremely effective. Last year,
Minnesota recorded a record-low number of alcohol-related deaths (131). But that doesn’t mean our
work is done. Without question, drinking and driving remain serious threats — alcohol-related
crashes still account for one-third of all traffic deaths and more than 30,000 motorists are arrested
for DWI each year.

Report DWI Arrests, Alcohol-Concentration and Seat Belt Citations
OTS asks for your support to report DWI arrests, alcohol-concentration of DWI offenders and
belt citations during the campaign. This information provides additional elements to support
news media outreach.

Reporting due to OTS by 5 p.m., Fri. Jan. 6, 2012. All reporting is completed online; reports are
no longer faxed in.

Materials to Help Your Agency Participate and Publicize Efforts
Provided online are reporting forms, template media materials and fact sheets — also, partners can
    DWI banners, window clings, bar coasters and posters.

Pass this information along if another officer has been assigned to organize your agency’s
mobilization. To update records and receive OTS emails directly, contact Amber Wagley,
amber.wagley@state.mn.us or 651-201-7065.

OTS understands your time demands and appreciates the dedication and commitment you
demonstrate by participating in this campaign. If you have ideas to make mobilizations more
successful or any questions, please contact OTS or your liaison.
