North Dakota increasing patrols during “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign



Fargo, North Dakota – Between December 15 and January 31, law enforcement in North Dakota will increase patrols to assist in removing drunk drivers from the road. The program is called Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

In North Dakota, alcohol plays a role in 35–40% of fatal collisions each year; nevertheless, every death can be completely avoided by driving sober or obtaining a sober ride.

“If you plan to drink, plan to get home safely either by calling a friend, a taxi, or a ride-hailing service, it’s that easy. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over is a clear message to make the responsible choice to always drive sober,” said Cass County Sheriff Jesse Jahner.

This program is a component of the Vision Zero plan, which aims to eradicate major injuries and fatalities from auto accidents on North Dakotan roadways.
