Regional DUI Task Force Announces
Increased DUI Enforcement Period

West Fargo, North Dakota  - Beginning March 15-23, 2013 the Southeast Fargo Regional DUI Task Force in conjunction with the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) will increase enforcement as part of an effort to keep individuals from driving under the influence. During this time, additional officers will be assigned to monitor city, rural and state roadways.

“Last year, one alcohol-related crash occurred every 8.6 hours,” said West Fargo Police Officer Tyler Williams.  “Alcohol related crashes also have the highest number of fatalities. Think about it, this could affect your parent, child, significant other or your best friend.”

“I am going to do my part to decrease the amount of intoxicated drivers on the road,” said Williams.  “Ultimately, it is my goal to not only decrease the number of drunken drivers, but to get that number to zero.”

The DUI Task Force would like to remind everyone to please designate a driver.  In 2011, to encourage responsible and positive behavior, NDDOT launched the public safety campaign, “Don’t Forget TODD.”  This is an interactive website designed to remind people to always designate a driver when alcohol is involved. 

More information on regional DUI enforcement activity throughout the state can be found at www.dontforgettodd.com.  This website contains the list of increased enforcement periods, safe ride information, a text and email alert option to sign up for increased enforcement alerts and much more.

The Southeast Fargo Regional DUI Task Force includes the following agencies:  NDHP,  Steele, Traill, Cass, Richland, Ransom and Sargent County Sheriff’s Departments, and Fargo, West Fargo, North Dakota State University, Wahpeton,  and Lisbon Police Departments.
