the National Labor Day Campaign for traffic safety starts Monday and continues through the Labor Day weekend, ending on September 3.

The Montana Department of Transportation notes that there have been 36 alcohol-related traffic deaths this year, as of August 13. That is 13 more than at this time last year.

Montana Transportation Director Tim Reardon said, “Alcohol-related crashes account for 44 percent of Montana’s traffic fatalities over the last five years. We need to reverse this trend immediately…”

Law enforcement will be increasing patrols and remind motorists that driving impaired and not buckling your seatbelt increases the risk of serious injury or death.

If you are planning a holiday party (or any time you have adult beverages around), make during you designate a driver to get you and others home safely. Or you can arrange a pick-up by a friend or family member who can come and get you. Even if you think you know your limit, don’t drink and drive.
