Traffic; fatalities decrease in No'tt Dakota There were 104 traffic fatalities on North Dakota roadways in 2008, a decrease of seven traffic fatalities from 2007. The 104 traffic fatalities occurred in 97 crashes. Alcohol use and a lack of seat belts continue to be contributing factors in crashes. This year, alcohol was a contributing factor in 50 of the 104 deaths (48 percent), com- pared to last year"s rate of 57 per- cent. There were nine fewer lives lost as a result of alcohol use this year. Nearly three out of four people (59 of 81 fatalities) who were killed in traffic crashes were not wearing a seat belt, even though the vehicles were equipped with them. The 23 deaths not included in this number were pedestrian, motorcycle, or bicycle crashes.
