Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over begins March 1

Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over begins March 1

For Immediate Release: Feb 25 2021
Statewide, ND- Alcohol and drug-related motor vehicle crashes, fatalities and arrests for driving under the influence are 100% preventable, yet 42% of motor vehicle fatalities in 2019 were alcohol-involved.
To save lives and remove impaired drivers from the road, law enforcement across the state will have extra patrols for Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, from March 1 through March 31.

Many lives would be saved in North Dakota each year if every driver consistently makes the choice to drive sober or designate a sober driver.

This campaign is part of the Vision Zero strategy to eliminate motor vehicle crash fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
