IN URBAN AREAS
The new law also requires motorists to operate their vehicles in a careful
and prudent manner and at a reduced rate of speed, taking into account
the traffic, weather, visibility and road conditions. Laws prohibiting
careless or reckless driving also are in effect on Montana roads. These
laws allow motorists to be stopped even if they are not exceeding the posted
speed limit, if the speed at which they are traveling is considered too
fast for conditions or dangerous to others on the road. The careful and
prudent provision of the new law requires drivers to adjust their speeds
according to the amount and character of traffic, visibility, weather and
road conditions. For example, traffic may be heavy or light and may include
trucks, cars, motor homes, farm equipment, and motorcycles. In addition,
changing weather conditions may affect driver visibility and road conditions.
These conditions may include fog or snow and road surface conditions such
as water or ice.
Drivers should also be aware that wildlife can often be found on Montana
roads, usually at the mosts unexpected time in the worst possible place.
A black moose is very difficult to see on an unlit back road in the middle
of the night when you're going 65 miles an hour. Deer often can be found
next to roadways and jump out in front of vehicles.
Many of Montana's roads do not have much in the way of shoulder to pull
onto in the event of an emergency, so care should be taken in the event
you need to get off the road. Log trucks can also be found on many Forest
roads and should be given plenty of room. Truckers often broadcast their
positions on CB channels to alert other people on the same road of their
