This year, North Dakota will host its first WDoR for Road Traffic Victims on Friday, November 19, 2021, at the North Dakota Capitol Mall. This will be hosted by The North Dakota Department of Transportation Safety Division through Vision Zero.
With the holidays coming up, many North Dakotans will hit the road, eager to spend time with family and friends. It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year. Unfortunately, more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes.
Less than 6 hours of sleep triples your risk of falling asleep while driving! Drowsy driving is just as dangerous as driving under the influence. Like alcohol, sleepiness can slow down your reaction time, decrease awareness of your surroundings, impair judgement, and increase your risk of crashing which could harm yourself and others.
