Did you know you have to get out of the way on a Montana two lane highway if you have four or more cars lined up behind you?  Yep,  that's the law in Montana.  And under this law you must get off the highway and let those behind you go ahead of you.

How about passing buses with the stop arm out?  Traffic  must stop in both directions as kids are loading and unloading if the bus stop arm is out.  But there is an axception.  It is okay to pass a bus if you are heading in the opposite direction and there is a median in the middle of the road.

Many states have laws against using a cell phone while driving, but not in Montana.  You can use the phone at your own peril.  Where you can get tagged here is if you are distracted by using the phone while driving.  It falls under the distracted driving laws.  Other distractions while driving in Montana include eating and drinking, grooming, pacifying your children or even your pets or watching something on the dashboard.  All of these can be grounds for a fine if you cause an accident.

You see this all the time, but it is illegal to park and block a sidewalk, even if you are in your own driveway.  It is illegal to park on the opposite side of a street opposite a fire station.

And lastly,  here's one for you.  It is NOT illegal to drive barefoot in Montana but you could still be hit with fines if police say your barefoot was the cause of a crash.  In fact, barefoot driving is not recommended because you may not be able to produce the same breaking force.

Be safe.
