North Dakota launches seat-belt enforcement campaign

BISMARCK – Sixty law enforcement agencies across North Dakota are adding overtime shifts and saturation patrols during the month of November to focus on safe driving and seat-belt use.

The announcement comes from the North Dakota Department of Transportation as it launches a new theme for traffic safety education: “Code for the Road.”

The campaign tells North Dakota residents that it is OK to live by their own rules, and one of those rules should be that everyone in the vehicle is buckled up.

Law enforcement officers will be targeting increased patrols to those areas where there is a high risk of crashes and lack of seat-belt use contributes to death and injury.
