If you’re driving in Ward County Saturday night, be forewarned: The North Dakota Highway Patrol and the Ward County Sheriff’s Office will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint in the county August 17th.

In addition to the checkpoint, the highway patrol will also be conducting a saturation patrol in the county to remove impaired drivers from the road.

Law enforcement says it is providing the advance notice of the checkpoint and enhanced enforcement as a way for people to plan ahead, designate a sober driver and drive distraction-free.

Through August 11th, there have been 56 fatal crashes on North Dakota roads, resulting in 63 fatalities.

Of those fatal crashes, 37 percent was alcohol-related.
