CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming transportation officials are planning to display five different safety messages on signs scattered throughout the state following a recent spate of highway deaths.

The messages pushed by the Wyoming Department of Transportation will ask people to check their seat belts and speed and will remind them of the number of deaths on Wyoming roads.

So far this year, 18 people have been killed in crashes.

WYDOT Director Bill Panos says the signs will help improve safety on Wyoming roads.
