Missoula County leaders say the county consistently ranks among the worst in the state for DUI cases. Officials hope a new program call "ROAD" court will help reduce the amount of repeat DUI offenders.

Justice of the Peace Landee Holloway told ABC Fox Montana that the program offers more resources and support in an effort to turn repeat DUI offenders into healthy community members. She said said programs similar to the ROAD court in Butte, Havre and Billings have shown success.

ROAD court is funded from an $87,000 Montana Department of Transportation grant.
