Highway Patrol set to conduct safety campaign
During the month of December, the North Dakota Highway Patrol will be conducting a high visibility enforcement campaign that focuses on speed, right of way, impairment, distracted driving and seat belt violations.
The goal of the campaign is to have an increased patrol presence on roadways, encouraging drivers to voluntarily comply with traffic laws. An increased trooper presence actively engaged in traffic stops will target driving behaviors to decrease the probability of a serious injury or fatal crash, which is the goal of North Dakota’s Vision Zero strategy.
According to NDHP Safety and Education Officer Sgt. Wade Kadrmas, “When you become a licensed driver, you agree to be responsible for your personal driving behaviors. It is the responsibility of every driver to prevent tragedy and protect your life and the lives of others on the road by driving distraction-free, obeying posted speed limits and to never drive while impaired. Convenience should never take priority over safety.”
NDHP encourages drivers to make responsible driving choices and help North Dakota work toward Vision Zero’s mission of zero fatalities, zero excuses.
