ST. CLOUD - With frigid temperatures around the state and New Year’s right around the corner, the Minnesota State Patrol is urging you to be extra cautious if you’re traveling on the roads this week.

Drivers are urged to plan ahead, slow down, and be alert while traveling to keep safe.

Sergeant Jesse Grabow with the Minnesota State Patrol says having emergency supplies in your vehicle is crucial in case you get stuck or stranded on the roads.

The State Patrol plans to have plenty of extra DWI patrols over the holiday. Grabow says the goal isn’t the number of DWI’s they give away, but preventing people from drinking and driving in the first place.

Those who plan to go out and celebrate the New Year need find a sober ride or stay the night at their location. Those caught drinking and driving can lose their license, face jail time, and thousands of dollars in fines.
