Law enforcement agencies across the state joined efforts for the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign from Aug. 16 to Sept. 2 to deter motorists from driving impaired, according to the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT).

A total of 573 citations were attributed to the added enforcement patrols.

Of the total citations, 92 were alcohol-related, of which 55 were driving under the influence (DUI) arrests. There were 37 arrests or citations for other alcohol-related violations such as minor-in-consumption or open container, and 23 drug-related arrests.

High-visibility enforcement for traffic safety is one element of a collaborative effort to eliminate motor vehicle deaths in North Dakota, said the NDDOT.
