BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Highway Patrol is extending a special enforcement effort on the main north-south artery in the western North Dakota oil patch.

Troopers worked nearly 70 hours of overtime between Jan. 2 and March 13 enforcing crash-causing driving behavior on U.S. Highway 85.

The patrol says the effort resulted in 105 citations for speeding, right-of-way violations, seat belt violations, suspended licenses and driving under the influence. About half of the tickets were for speeding.

The patrol has extended the program to June 1.
