Sobriety Checkpoint planned for Morton County
This Friday, October 25th, the North Dakota Highway Patrol will be conducting a Sobriety Checkpoint in Morton County.
The test will take place in a predetermined location and will result in a 2-3 minute travel delay.
NDHP Troopers will also be conducting a saturation patrol to remove impaired drivers from the road.
This is part of "Vision Zero" which is a mission to reduce accidents, injuries, and fatalities.
So far this year, there have been 87 fatalities from 78 crashes on North Dakota roads.
32 of these crashes have involved a driver with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit.
Results from the checkpoint will be provided after the event.
