Buckle Up, Montana!
As Memorial Day weekend and the start of the busy summer travel season approaches, MDT and law enforcement agencies around the state are ramping up public education and enforcement efforts through June 5th. As part of the “Click It or Ticket” National Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization initiative, officers will be out enforcing Montana’s seat belt law and ticketing for traffic violations; including seat belt use and child safety seat usage.
Increased enforcement serves as a reminder that not wearing your seat belt can cost you much more than a ticket. When you don’t buckle up, your life can be left undone. In 2015, 121 people chose not to wear their seat belts and lost their lives on Montana roads. Are you or your loved ones ready for you to die on a Montana road? If the answer is “no,” it’s time to make the right choice and buckle up!
