Crackdown targets unqualified ND Oil Patch drivers

BISMARCK — The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a three-day crackdown on unqualified truck drivers in the western Oil Patch resulted in more than 100 citations and 35 drivers being placed out of service.

The commercial motor vehicle enforcement effort happened last week west of U.S. Highway 83 and north of Interstate 94. The patrol says the goal was to remove drivers from behind the wheel if they didn't have the proper training and licensing.
