The conversation at the town hall meeting highlighted that there was a human element involved in these a'.ccidents, however with the state's Vision Zero Traffic Safety Initiative, a comprehensive, mul- ti-agency effort between the North Dakota Department of Trans- portation, North Dakota High- way Patrol, and the North Dako- ta Department of Health, they look to learn from tragedy and pre- vent it in the future. Their goal is to continually work toward zero motor vehicle fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads. Each partic- ipating agency has a lead role in both educating the public and im- plementing state laws with re- spect to traffic safety.

He re- ceived a letter from Grand Forks District Engineer Les Noehre, which stated that several major changes would be happening at the rural intersection outside of Park River. The letter from Noehre said that "during this coming construction season the Grand Forks district will install LED stop Signs at the intersection of state highways ND 32 and ND 17. This is the first ru- ral installation in my district so it will be a trial intersection. We will also be adding red reflective tape to the stop sign posts and in- stalling crossroad symbol signs on ND 17." Noehre, Deputy Director for Driver and Vehicle Services and Business Support Mark Nelson, Communications Director Peggy Anderson, and NDDOT Director Thomas Sorel visited the inter- section on Jan. 31 and followed up with a town hall meeting in Park River.
