Keep the holidays bright for North Dakota #Savethe20

This season should be a time of light and laughter. But crash data from 2011-2014 indicates on average 20 people will die in motor vehicle crashes in North Dakota between November 21 and December 31. Deaths that could have been prevented will darken the holidays for families.

On average, 2 out of 3 of motor vehicle fatalities during this time of the year are unbelted and nearly one-third are alcohol and speed related.

To prevent this loss of life, the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) and its partners are asking you to do your part to help #Savethe20 – buckle up, drive sober, and slow down…and ask everyone you know to do the same. The lives saved could be yours or your friends or family.
