Description: Safety has always been our first priority - The ND State Highway Department in the 1920s and 1930s

With more cars came the need for better roads. With better roads came drivers with faster cars upon those roads. As traffic issues grew the North Dakota State Highway Department's efforts to make travel safer were greatly increased. Road grades and alignments were built to accommodate the modern car. Statewide safety conferences were held and national safety contests were conducted. The Highway Patrol began and the licensing of drivers started. A public relations campaign undertaken to educate drivers was delivered in person to thousands of people.
