Beginning March 1: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over

Statewide, ND - Preliminary data for 2019 shows 42% of all vehicle fatalities were alcohol-related. In order to save lives and remove impaired drivers from the road, law enforcement across the state will have extra patrols for Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, beginning March 1 through March 31.

Alcohol and drug-related motor vehicle crashes, fatalities and arrests for DUI are 100% preventable. Many lives would be saved in North Dakota each year if every driver consistently makes the choice to drive sober or designate a sober driver.

This campaign is part of the Vision Zero strategy to eliminate motor vehicle crash fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
