Western ND is the most dangerous workplace in the country. Oil has deserved the criticism it gets on dangerous work, leaks, spills, pollution and financial damage to those not participating in oil. Too many of their workers have a "cowboy" attitude on the highway. Yesterday one came up to my back bumper to try to make me speed beyond --i guess. He then passed me at about 80mph (alaska plate, dually pu. Oil puts extreme demands, unnecessarily, on many of their workers and has a pompous attitude that everything they do is more important than anyone else. It is reflected in many of their workers in crime, drug use, prostition and reckless driving. Our state can fix many of these problems but instead they just approved "open waste pits".

Yah, they did provide much info so it would be easy to speculate.

Ah, the news didn't report that he was attempting to pass. Maybe that is what everyone who has been involved in these accidents is doing.

Traffic is different up here every day as I live just outside of Noonan. The driver crossing the center line meant the driver was passing a tanker truck when he shouldn't have been.

The news has not reported whether or not texting was involved. I have made many trips to Crosby in the last few months and traffic north of Kenmare is light. A bit of heavy traffic by around Bowbells, but generally very light. I see plenty of texting by drivers in Minot. That may be what they are doing on those stretches of highway. Maybe we need TA (texting anonymous).

It makes a person wonder, but I do think that it is related to the fact that there is just a lot more traffic in the NW part of North Dakota, and so many people are distracted with phones, texting, and so many people are just plain "sleepy" and falling asleep at the wheel after putting in long hours at rig sites, etc...

as more and more of these accidents occur- crossing the center line--, I have to wonder if they are based in suicide ideation, if they all think they are on 4 lanes and not thinking or drugs/alcohol are involved. There are just too many of these head-on crossing the center line encounters.
