There were 10 DUI’s issued over labor day weekend during safety operations
This past Labor Day holiday weekend 10 drivers were pulled over and issued DUI’s for drunk driving during a five-day traffic safety operation. There have been 11 multi-agency traffic safety operations since 2016 and the next operation will happen over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
The Labor Day holiday enforcement operation is being used to educate drivers about the dangers of impaired driving and follow up with dedicated DUI enforcement. They are also looking to reinforce the importance of wearing seat belts and enforce the state’s zero-tolerance stance toward impaired driving.
According to the Wyoming Highway Patrol, there have been 102 fatalities on Wyoming roads to date in 2017, as compared to 83 at this time last year.
