Seat belt campaign planned
In North Dakota, not wearing a seat belt is the No. 1 contributing factor of fatalities resulting from motor vehicle crashes.
“It takes less than five seconds to buckle your seat belt,” says Stutsman County Sheriff Chad Kaiser. “But it is a life-altering choice that could significantly impact the rest of your life and the lives of your loved ones. Always buckle up.”
In 2017, 55 percent of motor vehicle fatalities in North Dakota were not wearing their seat belt.
This effort is funded through federal grants administered by the NDDOT
