The NDHP’s Northeast Region had extra troopers on patrol during the higher volume traffic periods leading up to Christmas.
During this period, troopers focused their enforcement efforts on violations that are the highest crash causation factors; speed, right of way violations, and impaired driving. From Thursday, Dec. 20 through Sunday, Dec. 23, troopers in the NE Region issued 136 speed citations, 35 failure to yield/stop citations, and remarkably made only one DUI arrest.
There were no serious injury or fatal crashes in the NE Region during the holiday travel period leading up to Christmas.
Troopers will be working overtime hours through the end of the year in an attempt to reduce traffic fatalities. All traffic laws will be strictly enforced. Motorists are reminded to drive responsibly.
The choice is yours.
