    WARNING: New Law Requires Search Warrant for DWI Blood Tests

    Governor Dayton has signed into law new limits on DWI alcohol concentrations. Starting August 1, 2015, it will be a GROSS MISDEMEANOR (up to one year in jail and one year loss of driver's license) for anyone to drive with an alcohol concentration of .16 or more. The limit was lowered from .20. This new lower limit will mean more arrests, more license revocations, and more people in jail.
