Vision Zero Plan

The North Dakota Strategic Highway Safety Plan (Vision Zero Plan) is the result of a comprehensive and coordinated effort by the North Dakota Department of Transportation and hundreds of Vision Zero partners representing state, local, and tribal governments and other public and private organizations. The plan uses data to identify areas to improve highway safety in North Dakota through education, roadway safety enhancements, policy advancements and other solutions.

Seat Belt Use in North Dakota

North Dakota's seat belt use study provides statistically reliable data from which generalizations, comparative analyses, and recommendations can be developed based on a field survey of driver and right front-seat passenger seat belt use. This National Occupant Protection Use Survey (NOPUS) is based on national standards for survey design and field observations protocol.  It provides the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) with a systematic evaluation of seat belt use rates within the state. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) funds NOPUS through the NDDOT's Highway Safety Division.

Local Road Safety Program

The Local Road Safety Program (LRSP) is prepared for each region in North Dakota. The LRSP was prepared as part of North Dakota's statewide highway safety planning process. The contents are the result of a data-driven process, with a goal to reduce severe crashes (defined as those crashes resulting in at least one fatality or incapacitating injury) by documenting at-risk locations, identifying effective low-cost safety improvement strategies, and better positioning each region in North Dakota to compete for available safety funds.
