He would make a game of it, count- ing until one would finally stop. While there are some in the area who take the intersection for granted, it was noted that the previous fatal accident that took place there did not involve local drivers. Some of the suggestions made were possible engineering fix- es that would involve a blinking light whether a blinking stop- light similar to the intersection of Highway 18 and Highway 66 near Crystal or a solar powered signal that would be triggered by a sensor similar to the intersection on Highway 2 and High- way l near Lakota. Noehre noted that the overhead flashing lights are not effective and they are planning to remove those. Another person commented on how there is no accountability at that intersection, suggesting a camera ticketing system, which indicates the need for more enforcement. Additional suggestions included a roundabout or added rumble strips. Sharon Lipsh, Walsh County Superintendent of Highways, said that the county is in process of doing a safety project with signage across the county at curves and some intersections. The state also is working to make improvements with plans in place across the county whether to change signage, increase lighting, or add more rumbles. When the cost was brought up, Sorel said that he didn't want anyone to get hung up on the numbers. The state recently Photo: Larry Bid announced the Vision Zero Traffic Safety Initiative, a com- prehensive, multi-agency effort between the North Dakota De- partment of Transportation, North Dakota Highway Patrol, and the North Dakota Department of Health. Their goal is to continually work toward zero motor vehi- cle fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads. Each participating agency has a lead role in both educating the pub- lic and implementing state laws with respect to traffic safety. "We learn from tragedies like this," Sorel said adding that they don't look at it as asingle intersection, but look to apply what they learn across the state. "What's the Vision Zero solution here?" Vision Zero will be implemented through various strategies, including: (1) widespread public education/outreach, (2) work- ing with the legislature to ensure state laws represent best prac- tices in traffic safety, (3) high visibility enforcement of exist- ing laws, (4) technology advancements, and (5) infrastruc- ture/road safety improvements. Along with the support and ac- tion of these lead agencies, private sector stakeholders that share interest in traffic safety will also be included in Vision Zero ef- forts. "I will commit to come back," Sorel said. "We heard you."
