ND Highway Patrol plans saturation enforcement Wednesday

BISMARCK - The North Dakota Highway Patrol plans to have all available troopers on patrol Wednesday. The day before Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel days of the year and the highway patrol is ramping up enforcement efforts.

This year there have been 124 fatal crashes on North Dakota roadways.

The NDHP is asking motorists to make responsible choices when driving:

“Driving responsibly is the most important factor in arriving at your destination safely,” said Col. James Prochniak. “I urge motorists to remember that driving is a full-time responsibility.”

During this special enforcement effort, all driving laws will be strictly enforced. The NDHP is maximizing its efforts to increase visibility throughout the holiday season.
