What can you do to stay safe when riding your bike?

Whether you are new to Big Sky Country or have grown up cycling Montana's hills, you know bicycles are an everyday part of life in this beautiful state. In fact, they are so much a part of life the law recognizes them as vehicles, meaning they get the same attention as every other car and truck on the highway. It also means riders equate to drivers and must follow the same rules of the road that other motorists follow.

Underride guards: saving lives in car-truck crashes

Montana drivers know the danger they can face when encountering an 18-wheeler, especially in bad weather. Whether they are cruising down an Interstate, driving on one of Montana’s federal or state roads, or negotiating city traffic, hitting or being hit by a huge truck puts them at grave risk for serious injury or death.

Why waking up during surgery can be traumatic

Surgery can be a frightening experience for many people in Montana. Not only do individuals fear the pain that comes with being operated on, but the sight of the body being opened up can be shocking. Qualified surgeons will properly anesthetize you depending on the needs of the surgery, even inducing temporary unconsciousness so that you do not feel pain or witness the surgery as it occurs. If the anesthesia is improperly administered, however, you may end up waking up sooner than you should.
