Snowmobiling While Intoxicated (SWI) is a serious crime in the state of Minnesota. Driving while under the influence of alcohol, hazardous material, or a controlled substance while operating a snowmobile is referred to as SWI. If you are caught driving under the influence while operating a snowmobile you may face sobriety tests by an officer to determine your current state and to test for substances. If you refuse to comply the the officer by taking the test, you may lose your snowmobiling privileges and your license could be suspended for one year. An SWI conviction and refusal are placed on your driver's license record and could affect your driving privileges.
