Wyoming’s Highway Patrol will be working overtime through the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, as you might expect.  However, Sergeant Stephen Townsend of the patrol’s Cheyenne headquarters says heightened patrols will continue from now through the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.  Townsend says the objective is to reduce traffic crash injuries and fatalities and to provide a safer experience for the travelers on Wyoming’s roadways.  Townsend adds, “We get more folks out and about especially on the holidays, traveling, they’re out shopping, going to visit relatives – and of course we have the celebrations that will begin for the holiday season.” Townsend urges travelers to be sure everyone in the car is secured in their seatbelts and child restraints are in use where appropriate. In addition to the variety of concerns on the highway, Townsend says the patrol will be watching for drivers who may be under the influence of alcohol and taking a zero tolerance posture when making such stops.

  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
