Although Roads are Clear, NDHP Warns of Careless Drivers

News

We haven’t seen this many people traveling for thanksgiving since 2005.

And although the roads are clear this year, the North Dakota Highway Patrol says it’s no reason to be driving carelessly. They’ll have officers on patrol, looking for drivers without seatbelts or on their phones. We spoke with Wade Kadrmas, the safety and education officer, who says they’ll be watching for drunk drivers, as well as sleepy drivers.

Sgt. Wade Kadrmas; ND Highway Patrol: “Another big thing is after the holidays, after you’re done celebrating your families you can have some pretty long days, just on the way back, being tired and traveling, that can be just as bad as impaired driving..”

48.5 million drivers are expected to be on the roads this week, traveling for the holiday. A big reason, gas prices have dropped. It’s now 2 dollars 60 cents in North Dakota.
