The North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) conducted a DUI checkpoint and alcohol saturation patrol on Saturday, July 7, at Saw Mill Corner in Bottineau County. One hundred forty-five vehicles were stopped at the checkpoint and eleven drivers were tested for impairment. There were no arrests, citations, or incidents. The primary purpose of a checkpoint and saturation event is to deter drinking and driving. High-visibility enforcement is one element of a collaborative effort to help meet the goal of zero motor vehicle fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads. Through July 7, approximately 22.5 percent of North Dakota fatal crashes have been alcohol-related.
