The Bismarck Police Department will be conducting a DUI saturation patrol Saturday night.

The department is one of 50 law enforcement agencies across the state that will be adding extra patrols for Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over traffic safety enforcement this month.

Last year in North Dakota, the month of October ranked the highest for alcohol-related crashes with a total of 100 -- a rate of 3.23 per day.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol and Burleigh, Emmons, Grant, McLean and Morton County Sheriffs' Departments are participating in the increased enforcement in October, along with police departments in Bismarck, Lincoln and Mandan.
