ND Fatality Record

It’s not a record to be proud of but North Dakota set a modern day mark for traffic fatalities in 2012.   Alcohol was a factor in about half of the 169 road deaths last year.  Highway patrol Sgt Tom Iverson says that’s well above the national average.  Iverson says stiffer penalities...enforcement...and education can help but ultimately personal responsibility needs to come into play to bring alcohol-related crashes down.  North Dakota recorded 148 fatalties in 2011.  Two years ago the state's count was 105.
