If you grew up in Montana and are still here today, you notice that it is clearly not the same. One thing you notice is the large increase in drivers on the roads, especially during peak summer hours.


With increased traffic, comes increased accidents. We have more people coming from big cities that are not used to being able to look out through their windshield and actually see for miles. With Montana's beauty comes more distracted drivers.

Then you put into play the fact that for some reason, everyone seems to be in a hurry. Whether it's not stopping completely at stop signs, cruising through construction zones, or just taking advantage of Montana's higher speed limits, it's very obvious that our roads have become our enemy.
