North Dakota Highway Patrol troopers plan to be out in force this holiday weekend, and through the rest of the year.

Lt. Jody Skogen says troopers will be looking for drunk drivers, speeders and motorists who aren't buckled up.

In the past five years, 10 people have died on North Dakota roads over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The last time the state had no traffic fatalities over Thanksgiving was eight years ago.

So far this year, 127 people have died on North Dakota roads.
