BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A law enforcement effort in North Dakota to crack down on impaired driving over the Christmas and New Year’s holiday season resulted in 50 arrests for driving under the influence.

The state Transportation Department says the extra emphasis from Dec. 16 through Jan. 31 resulted in a total of 447 citations, with 78 of them alcohol-related. There also were 35 drug-related arrests.

Funding for the effort came from the federal government.
