Highway Patrols Increase This Weekend

The Wyoming Highway Patrol has announced it will be placing extra Troopers on the State’s roadways during the holiday weekend and New Year’s Eve looking for impaired drivers.  The extra patrols are carried out by officers assigned solely to look for drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  Fortunately, says Lieutenant Tom Kelly of the Patrol’s Jackson office, the problem isn’tas big here as in some other areas.  Kelly says while the patrol locally will be participating in the ramped up patrols, over the past several years, this area has had very little problem with impared drivers on New Year’s Eve.  Says Kelly, “[Making sure] people know we are out there watching, I think it helps them make the decisions they’ve been making couple New Year’s Eve holidays in using those taxi services or designating sober drivers.”  Kelly says there is no particular time in this area where impaired drivers are more likely to be on the road as opposed to some areas where New Year’s Eve is the time officers see the most violations – and he says he hopes are motorists here will continue to keep those incidents at a minimum.  None-the-less, if a member of the public sees a suspected drunk driver, they are urged to call the “REDDI” hotline at 800-442-9090.

    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
