  • Thanks for the invite to your meetings, I am unable to attend due to previous commitments.
    Safe Kids Yellowstone County is still providing car seat checks that help caregivers with the use and installation of their child’s seat. We do these the second Saturday of every month at AMR from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. People are asked to schedule an appointment at https://www.picktime.com/SKYCSeatChecks.
    We are also going to be adding some quarterly seat checks in Laurel starting in April. Those events will also be able to be scheduled on picktime.

  • Please have the caution arrow turn light to Green on turn lanes …it will cut down on people running the light because they have to wait…why have the turn arrow if you are not going to have it green? Thanks!

  • REF your attempt to improve road safety in Billings, please pass this on to the City Manager & Billings Police Chief St John: “How about you start enforcing the current laws on the book”? Specifically, in addressing all four CTSP categories: (1) SPEED RELATED – There is NO enforcement; anything goes on Billings streets; (2) DISTRACTED DRIVING – There is NO enforcement; anything goes on Billings streets; (3) LACK OF RESTRAINT – There is NO enforcement; anything goes on Billings streets; (4) IMPAIRED DRIVING – There is NO enforcement; anything goes on Billings streets. Just a hint for the weak minded – there seems to be a common “trend” here, FYI. Zero enforcement = zero consequences! Billings City Council ALSO has a common “trend” – do nothing but study the h@ll out of whatever is the theme of the month, and then shelve it. SOLUTION = Simple; develop of PROACTIVE POLICE FORCE and stop being a continuous REACTIVE POLICE FORCE. Reinstitute the monthly ticket quota system of ALL officers enforcing ALL traffic laws in ALL city areas. At one time it was 30/month – now it’s maybe 1 or 2 tickets per month per officer depending on which vehicle accident they happen to be assigned to (hence, REACTIVE enforcement). RESULT of QUOTAS = Hated by EVERYONE (officers & citizens) on the streets but it DID work at one time. It sure is better than what we have now, which is “Hey folks! Let’s do NOTHING, have ZERO traffic law enforcement, and do yet another study!!!
