BILLINGS -

A new report says Montana and Wyoming are not keeping up with the rest of the states when it comes to highway safety laws.

The Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety ranked Montana and Wyoming as among the "worst states" for passing laws to save lives and prevent injuries on our roads.

Montana only passed 5 of the 15 laws promoted by the group.

Those laws include enforcement of seat belt use, motorcycle helmets, and impaired driving to name a few.

Wyoming fared a little better by passing 6 laws.

Only two states ranked lower than Montana.
