BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota state troopers in the southwest part of the state have been cracking down on right-of-way violations at intersections.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Thursday’s right-of-way detail ended with 101 citations and 51 warnings, mostly for right-of-way violations and seat belt violations.

The detail was held to increase traffic safety and reduce crashes caused by common violations, such as failing to yield and stop.

Trooper say right-of-way violations are one of the leading crash causation factors on North Dakota roadways. They contributed to the deaths of 30 motorists last year.
