Williams County Enforcement Event 

RESULTS: Approximately 300 vehicles went through the checkpoint which was located on 26th St W, near the 1500 block in Williston. The checkpoint was conducted from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm.  

Seven drivers were tested for impairment and four were arrested for DUI. In addition, there was one drug possession arrest, one fake ID arrest, and one open container citation issued.  

Following the checkpoint, saturation patrols were conducted which resulted in two additional DUI arrests and one additional drug arrest. 

The sobriety checkpoint reflects NDHP’s ongoing efforts to maintain roadway safety by targeting specific times and locations to have a greater impact at reducing incidence of impaired driving.  

NDHP Northwest Trooper Preston Langer stated, “Impaired driving is completely preventable; all it takes is a little planning. Our message is clear: Never drive impaired. We encourage motorists to ensure their safety and the safety of others on our roadways by designating a sober driver or arranging for alternate transportation by planning ahead of time to arrive home safely.”
