Bismarck Police Work to Terminate Texting while Driving

Posted: Updated:

Bismarck Police are looking to terminate texting while driving.

Today they had unmarked squad cars and extra enforcement out looking for distracted drivers.

Texting while driving has been against the law in North Dakota since August 1, 2011.

And sending or reading even one message, isn't cheap.. If police catch you texting, the fine is $100.

Bismarck Police Sgt. Tim Krous says today they pulled over around 25 people who looked like they were texting.

Nine of them were cited and will have to pay the fine.

During the traffic stops, they also gave out 2 seatbelt violations, arrested one person for possession of marijuana and one for paraphernalia.

The Bismarck Police Department will be going undercover to stop texting while driving again on Saturday.
