Safe on All Roads (SOAR)


The Safe On All Roads (SOAR) program was developed by the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) to help reduce traffic fatalities and injuries throughout Montana.

The SOAR program provides education on seat belt usage and safety, reducing impaired driving, car seat usage and distribution. We provide services to all people living on the Flathead Reservation. 

Motor vehicle crashes have a significant impact in Montana‚Äôs Indian Country. American Indians comprise 6.2 percent of the population in Montana, but represent approximately 17 percent of motor vehicle crash deaths in the state each year.  Goals and objectives of SOAR include:

  • Reduce traffic fatalities
  • Focus on impaired driving prevention and occupant protection
  • Reduce incidents of impaired driving
  • Educate youth not to ride with a driver who is under the influence
  • Increase awareness of the value of seat belts and promote seat belt use. It is estimated that three out of every four child safety car seats are installed incorrectly.
  • Education regarding proper use of child safety car seats
  • Car seat checks
  • Car seat distribution
  • Working with school groups on teen campaigns
  • Health fairs, community events and outreach
