Local rural road travel has the highest injury crash incidence in North Dakota. Crashes on these roads were determined to differ in contributing factors and characteristics when compared to those on other rural roads. Crash data from 2006 to 2010 was studied to quantify factor magnitude in predicting...

 

The initial statewide driver traffic safety survey provides baseline metrics for the TSO and others in understanding perceptions and behaviors related to focus issues. A core set of questions addresses nationally agreed upon priorities, including seat belts, drinking and driving, and speeding. In addition...

 

Over time, road usage in western North Dakota has changed. Interstate, highway, and low-volume unpaved roads have been used with greater frequency because of increased agricultural production and a growing energy sector. This evolution is especially evident in a 17-county region where oil extraction...

 

With the understanding that seat belts are a relatively low-cost safety device, and are an easy primary protection for occupants in passenger vehicles, North Dakota has chosen to continue to measure seat belt use on non-interstate rural roads. In 2001, 88% of fatal crashes occurred on rural roads. During...

 

Traffic crashes stem from a variety of underlying causes. Too often, the cause is risky driving whether it is speeding, running a red light, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. These risk factors have all been associated with increased risk of crashes. The goal of our work is to consider...

 

The objective of this report is to provide a benchmark for elevator managers in assessing performance, and supply a source for recognizing trends in the characteristics of North Dakota elevators. This report and the statistics mailed to individual elevators are presented as a source of information for...

 

This report represents a continuation of analysis concerned with the patterns and methods of distributing grains and oilseeds from North Dakota. Note: this report is being published online only.

 

Seat belt use on rural roads is especially important due to the relatively high risk for injury compared to urban areas. In the northern plains, where nearly 90% of travel occurs on rural roads, addressing this issue is particularly critical. A cohort group of 32 states was used to study seat belt use...

 

With the understanding that seat belts are a relatively low-cost safety device, and are an easy primary protection for occupants in passenger vehicles, North Dakota has chosen to continue to measure rural roads seat belt use. The U.S. Department of Transportation works with states to measure seat belt...

 

Speed is one of many factors that increase the risk of serious or fatal injury in traffic crashes. Understanding driver and road manager decisions regarding travel speeds is fundamental to improving traffic safety. The objective of this study was to test existing equipment and technology assets in monitoring...
