ND commercial vehicle registrations up 77%

In 2012, the North Dakota Department of Transportation issued over 300,000 commercial motor vehicle permits. That’s an increase of 77% since 2010. More vehicles — commercial and personal — increase the workload of North Dakota Highway Patrol. In fact, troopers worked nearly 17,000 hours of overtime last year. The Highway Patrol emphasizes improved safety boils down to drivers making good decisions.
