I find this number to be absolutely staggering, but Minnesota law enforcement have already made 18,568 DWI arrests so far in 2018 -- and we've got more than three months to go.

This past weekend's 283 statewide DWI busts bring the total to just under 19,000. With the holidays, we're sure to put the total far above the 20K mark by year's end.

That's so crazy to me. I cannot for the life of me understand why we keep doing this. Drink, have fun, whatever -- but we need to stop getting behind the wheel. This is not going to end well.
