Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over Begins Friday


The statewide enforcement campaign Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over begins Friday and runs through January 31. Law enforcement across the state will have extra patrols to remove impaired drivers from the road.

In North Dakota in 2017, approximately 1 in 6 adult arrests were for Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Arrests for DUI are 100% preventable if a driver would take personal responsibility to drive sober or plan to have a sober ride.

To encourage drivers to find a sober ride, the North Dakota Department of Transportation, through a grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Association and the ride-hailing service Lyft, will offer $10 off vouchers on the first 1,000 Lyft rides beginning Saturday and running until December 31 from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Riders can use the code “VisionZeroND” once per ride, but there is no limit on the number of times the code can be used. The Lyft app is available in your app store.
