Through January, law enforcement across the state will have extra patrols to remove impaired drivers from the road as part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.
Alcohol and drug-related motor vehicle crashes, fatalities, and arrests for DUI are 100% preventable – no matter the season. Drivers should always take personal responsibility by driving sober, designating a sober driver, or using a ride-hailing service.
Preliminary data in 2019 shows nearly 43% of North Dakota motor vehicle fatalities involved alcohol, a 10% increase from the same time period in 2018.
This campaign is part of the Vision Zero strategy to eliminate motor vehicle crash fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
