To prevent more deaths, the Minnesota State Patrol is putting extra DWI patrols on the roads tomorrow.

To bring awareness, the Department of Public Safety is airing this new green beer-themed TV spot, called "O'Busted."

It's all part of the state's core traffic safety initiative, Toward Zero Deaths or T-Z-D.
