I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Brandner’s class at Wishek High School last month regarding numerous topics, such as laws and policing. Most of the questions were centered on alcohol possession and use by juveniles. I’m addressing some of those questions in this month’s article.
Governor Doug Burgum, along with the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT), North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) and the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH), launched Vision Zero as the state’s primary traffic safety initiative. The comprehensive, multi-agency effort’s goal is to continually work toward zero motor vehicle fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads. Each participating agency has a lead role in both educating the public and implementing state laws with respect to traffic safety.
“As a state, we must continually reinvent how we think about traffic safety -- what issues motorists are facing, what technologies help us or distract us - and work to ensure everyone gets home alive,” said Governor Burgum. “While government plays a key role in traffic safety, we can’t view this as solely a government issue, which is why the mission of Vision Zero is so important. By emphasizing the personal responsibility to buckle up and obey the law, we reinforce that prevention is every North Dakotan’s responsibility.”
This winter season has been dangerous for North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) troopers on North Dakota roadways. Numerous NDHP squad cars have been struck by passing motorists while troopers were assisting another motorist or conducting a traffic stop. Fortunately, no deaths or serious injuries have resulted from these crashes.
