This brief Kids Count report looks at major problems, available data, and some solutions for Montana's children as passengers in and drivers of vehicles on Montana's roads and highways. The report also presents information about adults' roles and responsibilities for preventing traffic accidents and protecting children. Facts presented in the report include: (1) motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for Montana children from age 1 to 15; (2) if a driver is unbuckled, 70 percent of the time children riding in that car are also unbuckled; and (3) use of seat belts on all roads in Montana was 72.6 percent in 1997. The report discusses proper use of vehicle restraints with infants and children, the Montana Child Occupant Protection Training Program, and sources of further information. (EV)
