Abstract In 2011, 148 people died on North Dakota roads. This is more fatalities than the state has experienced since 1982. North Dakota has been ranked consistently as one of the safest states in the nation and strives to maintain this distinction through effective traffic safety programs. The number of motor vehicle fatalities each year in North Dakota has dropped from a high of 227 in 1971 to 148 in 2011. The fatality rate has reflected a decrease from 5.73 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles of travel (VMT) in 1971 to 1.61 deaths per 100 million VMT in 2011. Historically (dating back to 1979), North Dakotas motor vehicle fatality rate had been consistently lower than the national fatality rate. But, twenty years later, in 1999, the states fatality rate crept beyond the national rate and again in recent years (2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011).
