(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Minnesota law enforcement agencies arrested 2,453 impaired drivers as part of an enhanced DWI enforcement campaign between November, 27th and December, 31st.

The arrest numbers reflect statewide DWIs from 347 reporting agencies, including the Minnesota State Patrol, county sheriff’s offices and municipal law enforcement agencies. The number of arrests is expected to approach 26,000 as data continues coming in and court cases are settled.

The highest alcohol-concentration in the state during the campaign was 0.34, which is more than four times the legal limit of 0.08.
