ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A new report shows the number of drunken driving deaths is declining in Minnesota.

The Department of Public Safety says 111 people died from drunken driving in 2011, compared with 185 deaths a decade ago. Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Tom Shmitz says the weekend and holidays generate more instances of impaired driving. People are visiting friends or relatives, drink too much and don't make plans for a designated driver.
