Law enforcement agencies in the Dakotas are joining counterparts in 13 other states in a four-day interstate enforcement campaign on Interstates 90 and 94.
The "I-90/94 Challenge" has a goal of zero fatalities on the two interstates from Washington state to Massachusetts through Monday, and a 50 percent reduction in all crashes for the reporting period. The effort covers more than 5,600 miles of highway.
The Minnesota State Patrol is coordinating the national effort and will gather statistics from participating states on the effectiveness of the operation.
The effort is part of a yearlong highway safety campaign by the International Association of Chiefs of Police to reduce traffic fatalities in the U.S. by 15 percent.
