In January, 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. was killed by a man who was driving a snowmobile while intoxicated. Turns out, this man also had a revoked drivers license due to multiple DWI offenses.

After that, The Minnesota Legislature decided to pass a new DWI law. The new law states that if you are convicted of a DWI while operating any motorized vehicle you will lose your drivers license and also be "prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats, and snowmobiles" for a year.

This new law takes effect tomorrow, August 1st.
