Highway Watch Program Initiated in North Dakota

As part of the nation’s overall Homeland Security program, a new program called Highway Watch is being initiated in North Dakota. The Highway Watch program will include North Dakota’s school bus drivers.

The Highway Watch program is the highway sector’s national safety and security program that uses the skills, experiences, and “road smarts” of America’s transportation workers to help protect the Nation’s critical infrastructure and the movement of goods, services, and people.
In addition to promoting safety, this program helps transportation professionals learn to be aware of their equipment and workplace to 1) avoid becoming a target of terrorist activity, and 2) avoid having their equipment become weapons of terror.

Training for regular and substitute school bus drivers related to participation in the Highway Watch Program will be available beginning in October of 2004. The State Highway Watch Coordinator will provide training. The training is free and will be set up at your location.

This training will be the approved School Bus Driver training for the 2005-2006 school year. Most school districts should, however, be able to schedule this training over the course of this year beginning in October through the end of the school year.

For additional information about the Highway Watch Program, contact Don Glarum at (701) 319-1401,; Laurie A. Diede at the North Dakota Motor Carrier’s Association, (701) 223-2701,; or Tom Decker at the Department of Public Instruction, (701) 328-2283,
