I find this number to be absolutely, completely mind-blowing, but Minnesota law enforcement have already made 20,138 DWI arrests so far in 2018 -- and we've got nearly three months to go.

This past weekend's 272 statewide DWI busts bring the total to just over 20,000. With the holidays, I think we could put the total above the 30K 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.
