Vision Zero to promote traffic safety at Sheyenne Speedway on Sunday


The following news release is from Vision Zero:


North Dakota’s traffic safety initiative Vision Zero will be present at the Sheyenne Speedway Track Championship on August 30 in Lisbon, ND to promote personal responsibility as a driver and vehicle occupant.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol (NDHP) will have the rollover simulator at the grandstand entrance prior to the races from 4:30 - 6 pm. The rollover simulator recreates what happens to vehicle occupants during a rollover crash. The NDHP will also lead the race cars around the track as a pace car, and there will be Vision Zero items given away to spectators.

“The rollover simulator gives people a first-hand look at the deadly consequences of not wearing a seat belt,” said Sgt. Wade Kadrmas of the NDHP. “Buckling up is your best defense against injury or death in a vehicle crash.”

The races at Sheyenne Speedway begin at 6 pm, but Vision Zero will be set up to interact with race fans at 4:30 pm.
