North Dakota sisters of the country music-duo Tigirlily have teamed up with the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) Safety Division to encourage drivers to always drive sober during Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over until Jan. 31.
ND Sober Ride, a Vision Zero program to remove impaired drivers from North Dakota roads, will offer discounted Lyft rides just in time for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Codes will be available from Dec. 20 to Jan. 2, 2022, or while codes last.
With the holidays coming up, many North Dakotans will hit the road, eager to spend time with family and friends. It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year. Unfortunately, more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes.
There have been 27 motor vehicle fatalities in North Dakota since May 8, bringing the 2021 total to 56 as of July 12. That’s 12 more fatalities than the same time period in 2020, and two more than the same period in 2019.
The Safety Division of the North Dakota Department of Transportation is proud to welcome Tigirlily back to their home state of North Dakota through a new partnership promoting personal responsibility while driving at their July 5 concert in Medora.
ND Sober Ride, a Vision Zero program aimed at reducing the number of impaired drivers on North Dakota roadways through ride-hailing vouchers, provided 800 Lyft rides in March.
Law enforcement across the state will have extra patrols to enforce the state’s distracted driving law from April 1 – 30 for the national U Drive. U Text. U Pay campaign through Vision Zero.
Law enforcement across the state will conduct compliance checks and shoulder taps from April 1 to May 23 in an effort to prevent life altering consequences caused by consuming alcohol underage. This enforcement campaign is a vital part of the Vision Zero strategy to eliminate motor vehicle crash fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
Law enforcement agencies across the state participated in the Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign from November 16 – 29, 2020 to help save lives on North Dakota roads.
