June 2, 2014 The Star Page 3 Regional DUI task force begins crackdown Beginning on June 1, expect to see additional law en- forcement officers on local roadways. Several North Dakota law enforcement agencies across the state will be increasing visibility in a continuing effort to end impaired driving. The Northeast Devils Lake Regional DUI Task Force will provide additional law enforcement presence on rural, city and state roads throughout the region for the entire month of June. "During our last enforcement period held in March, we made 15 total citations and arrests in the Northeast Devils Lake region," said Chief Keith Schroeder, of the Devils Lake Police Department. "This number of con- tacts shows that impaired driving is still a major issue in our area." Impaired driving is defined as motorists who operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, legal or illegal drugs. Law enforcement officials stress that any use of alcohol or drugs can affect a motorist's driving ability. Often motorists don't acknowledge their impaired state until they are far beyond the point of safely operat- ing a motor vehicle. Law enforcement officials believe that any fatality due to impaired driving is too many and officers encourage motorists to designate a driver if they plan to drink alco- hol. They also suggest closely observing warning labels on prescription medications, as many prescriptions can alter judgment and motor skills, and result in dangerous impaired driving. The success of past enforcement campaigns encour- ages the Northeast Devils Lake Regional DUI Task Force to continue their work to keep North Dakota drivers safe. The DUI Task Force began on October 1,2010 in order to take significant steps towards reducing alcohol-related crashes and fatalities across the state. Nearly eighty per- cent of all law enforcement agencies currently participate in the DUI Task Force across North Dakota. Funding for this enhanced enforcement is provided through the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT).

I--IllflJ "t'C3II.JI:IF /-IDF---'---- TC]IDAY Rolette County Public Health Board recently passed a resolution in support of Comprehensive Tobacco Free School Policies. Tobacco use is the leading pre- ventable cause of death and disease in the U.S. and in North Dakota. According to the Centers for Dis- ease Control and Prevention (CDC), 90 percent of adult tobacco users re- port starting before the age of 18 and each day 3,200 young people in the U.S. try smoking for the first time. The North Dakota Youth Risk Be- havior Survey reported that, in 2013, 19 percent of North Dakota's high school students were current smok- ers and 13.8 percent were current spit tobacco users; both of which are near or above adult use rates in North Dakota. The good news is that the major- ity of youth do not use tobacco prod- ucts, and students themselves are a great resource for changing social norms around tobacco use and fos- tering a tobacco-free culture within schools and community.
