Impaired Driving

Montana has one of the highest fatality rates in the nation for number of deaths caused by impaired drivers per vehicle mile traveled.

Data from 2019 indicates that 58% of all fatalities were the result of impaired driving, this is down from 64% during 2018.

Our goals are to:

Reduce Alcohol-Impaired Fatalities
To decrease alcohol impaired driving fatalities by 3%, from the 2014-2018 five-year rolling average of 74 to 71.8 by December 31, 2025.
