More than 500 citations were issued by North Dakota law enforcement agencies during the two week period between August 17 and September 3.

The enforcement action was part of the “Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over” campaign to deter motorists from driving impaired.

A total of 524 citations were issued. Of that total, 48 were alcohol-related, of which 43 resulted in driving under the influence (DUI) arrests.

There were another 16 arrests or citations for other alcohol-related violations such as minor in consumption or open container, 31 drug-related arrests and 158 speeding citations.

The enforcement campaign is one of several efforts that make nup the “Vision Zero” project, aimed at reducing vehicle deaths and injuries on North Dakota roads to zero.
