BISMARCK, N.D. –- Consuming alcohol underage is not only unsafe, but it is against the law. From October 13-31, law enforcement agencies across North Dakota will have extra patrols enforcing the law on underage drinking as part of the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign.
This enforcement effort is to educate and deter teens from drinking in order to keep them safe. If law enforcement does find anyone underage consuming or in possession of alcohol, those individuals could end up in court and ordered to pay fines.
More than 300 people have died in alcohol-related crashes in North Dakota over the past five years.
