d. Safety:  Bozeman and Montana in general have an extremely low crime rate compared  to the US average and to most European countries. The largest risk is drunk drivers at  night and visiting wildlife.  Women are advised to walk in groups in remote locations late at night.  The police are helpful and friendly, as are locals.  There is a cell phone ban for drivers in town.
