The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration announced more than $2 million in federal grants to improve commercial truck and bus safety across the state of North Dakota. FMCSA awarded $349,131 to the North Dakota Department of Transportation to implement an electronic commercial driver’s license testing system across the state.
FMCSA additionally awarded the North Dakota Highway Patrol $1,963,108 to conduct compliance reviews, safety audits and thousands of inspections throughout North Dakota, including ports of entry and remote border locations.
“We are committed to working side-by-side with our state partners to create a tight net of safety enforcement,” says FMCSA Administrator Ann Ferro. “These grants will enable North Dakota to achieve this goal by providing the resources needed to boost police presence along critical traffic corridors and border crossings across the state.”
