The Voice of Montana’s DUI Victims

Our goal is to eliminate deaths from impaired driving.  ZERO DUI DEATHS

The challenge is to change behaviors which are a part of Montana culture

Driving under the influence is a complex problem and the solutions are multifaceted

Please contact members of the House Transportation Committee to SUPPORT HB 144.  This will help the DMV track DUI offenses.
Please contact the House Judiciary Committee to oppose HB 169.  This bill has already been heard in committee.  This will allow DUI offenders to have the conviction expunged after 5 years.  This will prevent repeat offenders from stacking consequences.  Remember that a DUI arrest represents the offender driving impaired from 100-300 times.
