Almost 500 people were arrested in Minnesota for DWI over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend, according to a Department of Public Safety report.

Additional DWI patrols were out over the weekend to watch for drunken drivers. According to the preliminary reports from Minnesota law enforcement agencies, 495 motorists were arrested for DWI.

As of Monday morning there were 420 arrests, with an additional 75 coming between 9 a.m. Monday and 6 a.m. Tuesday. Officials with the Department of Public Safety’s Office of Traffic Safety say the arrest count will increase as extra DWI arrest information is submitted to the agency.

“Driving drunk puts the driver and everyone else on the road in danger,” Sgt. Jesse Grabow of the Minnesota State Patrol said in a statement. “There is no reason to get behind the wheel when you have had too much to drink. Always plan ahead for a sober ride.”

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety reported 58 traffic deaths this year, which is more than this time last year.
