On a not so bright not...SEATBELTS save lives, so does driving SOBER. I found out yesterday that a guy I had been friends with in college died last weekend when he rolled his truck while driving under the influence and he was thrown from the truck.. I lost a cousin this way 6 years ago, and my brother lost a friend this way 1 and a half years ago. So sad and such a waste. Totally bummed me out. I hadn't seen the guy in years, but I remember him as a really great guy with unfortunately a drinking problem.
Montana’s rate of alcohol-involved traffic fatalities remains more than double the national average. No other state is in that category, although Wyoming came close in 2008 with a 34 percent increase in its alcohol-related fatality rate. Montana’s DUI death rate actually declined 9.7 percent from 2007 to 2008, but our numbers are so high that we’re still the worst. How sad is that?!
