Commercial Carriers Targeted On Teton Pass

Following Sunday’s tragic accident on Teton Pass, motorists probably have noticed a large number of Wyoming Highway Patrol vehicles on that stretch of highway.  While the activity is not directly a result of that event, Lieutenant Tom Kelly of the Highway Patrol’s Jackson office says their concerns are related to the circumstances that often lead to such accidents.  Kelly says it called a MEET Detail which stands for mobile enforcement and education team.  The team is made up of troopers and port-of-entry officers and occasionally a representative of the Federal Motor Carriers Department to do spot checks of commercial carriers in various locations around the state.  Violations the team is looking for include weight restrictions, qualifications, mechanical problems, logs and licensing and medical certification.  Information from the team’s inspections can wind up on a company’s or driver’s record but does not influence regulations or restrictions imposed on the road.  That, says Kelly, is already in place and it is a matter of those restrictions being obeyed.  After this week, Kelly says the team will move on to another trouble-spot elsewhere in the state.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
