BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State transportation officials say increased patrols for impaired driving enforcement during June resulted in hundreds of tickets.

Officials say 41 law enforcement agencies including the Highway Patrol participated in the crackdown.

Officials say 870 citations were attributed to the added patrols. Ninety were issued for driving under the influence arrests and 44 were drug-related violations. Sixteen citations were given for having an open container of an alcoholic beverage in the vehicle and 22 offenders were minors consuming alcohol.

Funding for additional traffic safety enforcement is provided by federal grant money distributed through the state Department of Transportation.
