Almost 50 law enforcement agencies across the state are adding patrols for the “Click It, Don’t Risk It” high-intensity traffic enforcement period May 19 through June 1. Motorists throughout Montana should be aware of heightened enforcement.

The national seat belt campaign is timed to reach motorists as the summer travel season begins around Memorial Day.

Bozeman police officers and Gallatin County sheriff’s deputies will add overtime shifts for the increased enforcement. The law enforcement agencies will combine efforts to cover back roads and rural areas as well as city streets.

“Most of Montana’s vehicle fatalities occur in rural areas,” said Sheriff Brian Gootkin. “A lot of them are single-vehicle rollovers where a seat belt is the primary factor that makes a difference between life and death. Our deputies have responded to those crashes.  We remind people to buckle up, every trip, every time. We want our citizens to have a safe Memorial Day Weekend.”

Bozeman Police Deputy Chief Rich McLane added, “Every day our officers see how seat belts save lives and minimize serious injuries at crashes.  Our partnership with Montana Department of Transportation gives our officers the opportunity to proactively change driver behaviors and save lives.”
