What are the penalties for drowsy driving?

At some point in your driving life, you have probably felt sleepy; in fact, you may even have fallen asleep at the wheel, but is this a crime? Some states, including Minnesota, do not have laws that address drowsy driving specifically. However, if you exhibit erratic driving behavior, you may run afoul of the distracted driving laws in this state, and if, in your drowsiness, you are responsible for causing a car crash, you can be charged with reckless driving.

Your ignition interlock knows more about you than you think

It's been almost 10 years since Minnesota instituted the ignition interlock program. Currently, about 10,000 drivers are enrolled. The Department of Public Safety claims the program has been widely successful in reducing the number of drunk drivers on the roads, thereby saving lives.
