Extra Dakota County DWI enforcement campaigns in December resulted in 34 DWI arrests. That number does not include the arrests made by officers that were working regular shifts for their cities. Dakota County is among the Minnesota's top 13 counties with the highest number of combined alcohol-related traffic deaths and serious injuries. To combat the deadly behavior, extra DWI patrols will saturate Dakota County roads through September 2012. In December of 2011, participating officers stopped 759 vehicles and issued 176 citations for traffic- and equipment-related violations.
