bicyclists on highway with a car passing them

Motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are all responsible for safety on Montana’s roadways. Whether driving, bicycling, or walking, everyone must take care, because a collision with a motor vehicle and a bicycle or pedestrian is often deadly.


Here are some tips to safely share the road:


Motorists: Avoid distractions while driving and watch for cyclists and pedestrians, including when entering or exiting parking spaces. Watch for pedestrians and yield to them when they are crossing at uncontrolled intersections or marked crosswalks. When turning, it’s also important to look for bicyclists and pedestrian who may be crossing the street at those intersections.

In particular, a rule requiring recipients to maintain existing levels of service had some industry insiders worried that they’d have to continue operating expensive empty or near-empty flights to qualify.
