Montana's seat belt usage has grown steadily over the past few years. Restraint use on most of Montana's reservations, however, is still very low. Usage in pickup trucks is lower than other passenger vehicles and the usage rate among occupants from age 15 to 25 is lower than any other age group.

Our goals are to:

Reduce Unrestrained Fatalities
To attain a five-year average of unrestrained passenger vehicle occupant fatalities in all seating positions of 96.7 by December 31, 2026.

Increase Seat Belt Use
To ensure an observed seatbelt use rate of96.9% by December 31, 2026.
