The campaign and enhanced patrols will continue through January 2nd, with enforcement efforts specifically targeting impaired driving.
It also focuses on reminding people to wear their seatbelts.
"With the holidays people tend to get out and enjoy the time with their families and they go to parties and stuff like that so we tend to see an increase in impaired driving and occupant protection is a priority for us too this time, we have a lot of fatalities that are a direct result of not being buckled up," said MHP Sgt. Ben Havron.
He added that if you know you are going to drink with friends or family make sure you have a safe ride home. Anyone who sees an impaired driver should call 911.
The MHP says that every year in Montana, more than 200 people die in traffic crashes.
There are a few things people can do to protect themselves and others: always wear seatbelts, drive within the speed limit, and don’t drink and drive.
The MHP says that these are simple measures that save lives.
