If you're going out to celebrate on Cinco de Mayo weekend, be sure to plan a sober ride back home.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says extra patrols will be out through the weekend to make sure people aren't driving drunk.
Last year, four people died in crashes on the holiday – one of the fatal crashes was alcohol-related. There were a total of 691 crashes and 182 DWIs that year.
Law enforcement say that over the past five Cinco de Mayos, they've averaged about three drunk driving arrests every hour in Minnesota.
The number of arrests tends to go up when the holiday falls on a weekend, like this year.
Labor Day is generally the worst holiday in terms of DWI arrests with nearly five per hour. That's followed by St. Patrick's Day, Independence Day, Memorial Day and New Year's Eve.
Drunk driving facts
Between 2011 and 2015, 462 people were killed in alcohol-related crashes in Minnesota. And each year, 27,000 people are arrested for DWI. So one in seven Minnesota drivers has a DWI on their record.
Alcohol plays a factor in 25 percent of all traffic fatalities.
If you're caught drinking and driving, you could lose your license for a year, have to pay thousands of dollars in fees, and possibly spend some time in jail.
Repeat offenders – and first-time offenders arrested at .16 and above – must use ignition interlock in order to regain legal driving privileges or face at least a year without a license.
And people with three or more DWI offenses have to use interlock for three to six years, or they can't drive.
