Obey the Sign or Pay the Fine begins April 21

For Immediate Release: Apr 17 2023

STATEWIDE, ND – Speeding isn’t just aggressive driving, it’s deadly driving. Law enforcement across the state will have extra patrols enforcing speed limits and removing aggressive drivers from the road as a part of the enforcement campaign April 21 – May 21.

In 2022, speeding and/or driving too fast for conditions was a factor in 25% of fatal crashes and fatalities in North Dakota. Speeding and/or aggressive driving is defined as speeding, driving too fast for conditions, following too close, or operating a vehicle in a reckless, negligent or aggressive manner.

North Dakotans should take personal responsibility while traveling by obeying all posted speed limits and driving according to road conditions. Remember to allow extra time when traveling so everyone can make it to their destination safely.

This campaign is a vital part of the Vision Zero strategy to eliminate motor vehicle crash fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
