A new WalletHub study says North Dakota is the 30th safest state in the U.S. The report released Oct. 25 says it compared all 50 states across 53 key safety indicators grouped into five different categories.
As of July 2021, North Dakota reported 56 deadly crashes in the state, higher than the same period in 2020. In all of 2020, 8,834 crashes and 100 traffic related deaths occurred. While some crashes are unavoidable, far too many are due to distraction and unsafe behaviors.
