    Are they saying that a LEo can stop anyone now for no reason?
    Do I understand this correctly??

    Colonel Paul Grimstad of the MHP said this is a guideline, not a quota aimed at reducing traffic accidents and drunk driving. He said the stops don't have to result in officers giving you a ticket. The requirement went into effect on Monday. The legislature increased the number of Highway Patrol Officers and Grimstad said they want to see results.

    Montana Highway Patrol officers are now required to stop at least one vehicle per hour while patrolling state roads
    I suppose if your job is to patrol the highway, stopping folks WITH CAUSE on a regualr basis is reasonable and expected.

    I'd hate to think that way out in Montanna, a cop watches a lonely road and in 1 hour only one car passes, and you get pulled over for no reason other than to satisfy the "guideline". That would not be right, but if I were to guess were it possible to find at least one person deserving a stop each hour, I'd say it should be easy enough.
