Minnesota’s new DWI law applies to RVs

(Aug. 14, 2018) -- People convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – will lose their driver’s license and be prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles.

MINNESOTA — In light of a new DWI law in the state of Minnesota, West Hennepin Public Safety Director Gary Kroells shares a caution with residents that he hopes they all already follow, “Don’t drink and drive any motor vehicle regardless if it is a vehicle, boat, ATV, or snowmobile.

The state of Minnesota now has a new DWI law that went into effect Aug. 1. This new law means that people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – will lose their driver’s license and be prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats, and snowmobiles.

The state Legislature passed the law following the death of 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr., who died in January after being struck by a snowmobile driven by a man whose driver’s license was revoked after multiple DWI offenses.
