NDHP performing alcohol saturation in Stark County

On Friday and Saturday the North Dakota Highway Patrol will be conducting an alcohol saturation check in Stark County, according to a press release.

Troopers will be on patrol to detect and apprehend alcohol-impaired drivers.

Impaired drivers are a major threat to the safety and wellbeing of the public. On average, about 50 percent of fatal crashes are alcohol related.

Alcohol saturations are a major enforcement and public information effort aimed at reducing these alcohol-related crashes.

The primary purpose of alcohol saturation is to deter the practice of drinking and driving and to apprehend impaired drivers.

The Highway Patrol is committed to providing a safe environment for all motorists. It is asking that if you choose to drink, have a designated driver or call someone for a ride.
