(Not Pictured: Morgan Olson) Regional Task Force looks to crack down Mth mcreased-DUI elfforcement tMs month GRAFTON, N.D. - Local North Dakota agencies are once again ramping up efforts as they look to curb the continued problem of in- dividuals driving under the influence of alcohol and other drugs. The Northeast Grand Forks Regional DUI Task Force in conjunction with the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) is an- nouncing that additional law en- forcement officers will be present and monitoring city, rural and state roads throughout North Dakota fromAugust 16, 2013 throt]gh Sep- tember 2, 2013. This effort coincides with the national Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign. "Governor Jack Dalrymple re- cently signed House Bill 1302 into law giving North Dakota stricter DUI penalties," said Kyle Temes, Captain North Dakota Highway Patrol. "This bill doubles the fines for drinking and driving offenses and in many cases doubles the jail time as well, but it's those who have had multiple offenses that are hit the hardest, including additional jail time and/or possible felony charges." Statistical data has shown that there is still work to be done when it comes to eliminating the problem of people who choose to drink and drive in North Dakota. However with increased enforcement comes the opportunity at increased safety on roadways. Regional efforts done across the state will help to eliminate drunk driving. . One tool aimed at helpingto ed- ucate the general public has been the continued presence of the TODD campaign. Short for''To Designate a Driver," the TODD public service campaignconsists of a series of tel- evision, radio and print ads distrib- uted through North Dakota. Com- plementing these materials is an in- teractive website: www.dontfor-, where information is provided regarding regional DUI en- forcement activity. Other informa- tion on the TODD,website includes lists of increased enforcement pe- riods, safe ride information, text and email alert options and much more. "We want everyone to under- stand that buzzed driving is drunk driving," said Lauren Wild, Sheriff Walsh County. "Often we see in- dividuals who, because they are not obviously drunk, feel that they can still ge t behind the wheel and ef- fectively drive. This is not the case. Any alcohol in your system is like- ly going to affect the way your body reacts behind the wheel. Bottom line- ffyou plan on having anything to drink, also plan on not driving." The Northeast Grand Forks DUI Task Force includes the following agencies: North Dakota Highway Patrol, Pembina, Walsh, Nelson, and Grand Forks County Sheriff's De- partments, and Cavalier, Grand Forks, and University of North Dakota Police Departments Boe's 4GF Boe's Nursery Tree & Shrub Care Use fertilizer and fungicides for healthier trees.
