Mont. troopers must make hourly stops

HELENA, Mont. (AP) - A new policy requires state troopers to stop at least one vehicle an hour, but the driver need not be ticketed, and the chief said the rule steers clear of an anti-quota law.

Col. Paul Grimstad said the rule, which took effect Monday, is intended to reduce traffic accidents and drunken driving.
Montana had the highest number of alcohol-related deaths per miles traveled in a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report released in December 2003.

Officers and sergeants now average 0.88 stops an hour while patrolling highways, Grimstad said.

A state law passed this year bars law enforcement agencies from imposing minimum numbers of arrests or citations for an officer. But the law says the term "quota" excludes "use of generally accepted management techniques that employ performance objectives as part of an overall employee evaluation."

Grimstad said supervisors who are evaluating officers will review their traffic stops and alcohol-related tickets and could suggest further training if someone is below target.
