The statewide enforcement campaign Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over begins
December 14 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 December 14 to December 31
from 5pm to 2am. 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.
“We all want to have fun during the holiday season,
but we need to do so responsibly,” says Mandan Police Chief Jason Ziegler. “Use
a ride-hailing service to get home safely and this holiday season you can save
money while you do.”
is part of the Vision Zero strategy to eliminate motor vehicle crash fatalities
and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
