Minnesota troopers say more people are arrested for drunken driving on Super Bowl weekend than on the subsequent or prior weekends.
The state Department of Public Safety says that from Super Bowl game day through Monday, an average of 190 drivers are arrested for drunken driving and at least one person dies.
Officials say that in the past 10 years, DWI arrests spiked by 24 percent during Super Bowl weekend compared with the weekend before, and 18 percent more compared to the weekend after.
This weekend, law enforcement will add extra DWI patrols in most of the 25 most-dangerous counties in Minnesota.
Drunken driving arrests continue to decrease in Minnesota. Preliminary numbers show there were about 1,500 fewer drunken driving arrests in 2014 than in 2013, when about 25,700 people were cited.
