Five arrests were made during a N.D. Highway Patrol saturation from 12:30 to 3 a.m. Sunday in Grand Forks County.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol said there were three arrests for DUI, one for driving under suspension, and the other for violation of a restraining order.

The patrol, in cooperation with the Grand Forks County Sheriff's Department, conducted a pair of sobriety checkpoints Saturday night in the Larimore, N.D., area, the first on County Road 4 east of Larimore, the second on state Highway 18 north of Larimore.

A total of 73 cars passed through the checkpoints. Twelve drivers were evaluated for impairment, but the patrol said no DUI arrests were made during the checkpoints.

As of July 20, 47 people have been killed on North Dakota roadways in 46 crashes, 21 of which were alcohol related, according to the patrol.
