Accidents with large trucks cause physical and financial pain

Missoula occupies a unique and strategic place in the state of Montana. Its position on Interstate 90 makes it the gateway to the Pacific Northwest for commercial traffic, and the first stop for coastal truckers heading for the mid-west.

Aggressive driving goes beyond road rage

Impatient, angry or frustrated drivers are a common problem in Montana and around the county, and efforts to curb aggressive driving are often stymied by the attitudes of motorists who fail to recognize the dangers posed by their own reckless driving habits. The vast majority of road users surveyed by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety in 2012 said that aggressive driving was either a serious or very serious issue, but about half of them also admitted that they regularly travel at speeds well in excess of posted limits.

Self-driving cars could help older drivers stay safe

Older Montana drivers may be able to look forward to many more years behind the wheel thanks to new vehicle safety technology. Cars are now being developed with autonomous technology that can detect imminent hazards and then brake or steer to avoid them. Safety features like blind-spot warning systems already come standard on some vehicles.
