This weekend marks the official beginning of Jackson Hole’s summer tourist season.  As such, life will change slightly for local residents with the influx of hundreds of thousands of visitors.  Sergeant Cole Nethercott of the Jackson Police Department saysthe watch word needs to be patience.  He says there will be an increase in traffic, and with that, an increase in drivers who have never been here before and don’t always know where they’re going.  Those of who live here, he says, sometimes get in a hurry to be places sometimes.  Says Nethercott:  “The best prevention of accidents often times at this time of year is to just slow down.”  This year, even more patience and vigilance will be needed along Broadway near the intersection with Flat Creek due to traffic being limited to a single lane each direction which is causing a significant bottleneck through that area.

  • Bigger trucks aren’t always better - August 19, 2014
    I recently had the rare opportunity to test a compact and a full-size pickup pretty much head-to-head. Going into it, I was pretty sure there was nothing the compact version could offer that I would like more than the full-size truck. But the Nissan Frontier, despite its size, is no less truck than the Nissan […]
