Law Enforcement Visible on Labor Day Weekend

Posted: Updated:

Labor day weekend marks the unofficial end of the summer season -- and its a weekend law enforcement across the state want to make sure you survive.

With that in mind, a strong message of not drinking and driving is being passed on...

Highway patrol units will be out in full force over the weekend with more patrols than normal planned.

Capt. Gary Orluck with the Highway Patrol says getting more troopers on the roads can mean safer roads just simply by people knowing they are there -- and that is their hope, a safe holiday weekend.

(Capt. Gary Orluck - ND Highway Patrol) "The goal behind getting more patrol on the road is deterrence. When we have more patrol out there and people know it, if someone is planning to drink and drive, first off they should not drink and then drive because the chances of getting pulled over is higher because there are more officers on the road." 

Capt. Orluck also says three sobriety check points are planned for this weekend.

One in Ward County, another in Burke County, and a third in Williams County.
