Safe Memorial Day on the Roads

K2 Radio

As of Tuesday May 27th, the Wyoming Highway Patrol had received no reports of fatal crashes over the Memorial Day Weekend in Wyoming. It is possible a fatality was investigated by a local agency who has not yet reported the incident, but according to Major Perry Jones of the Patrol there have been no reports indicating that is the case. This busy weekend is typically viewed as the kick-off event to summertime in Wyoming with lots of folks hitting the highways around Wyoming. According to Jones, the summer months are traditionally the most dangerous months on Wyoming highways with an increase in traffic volume, more motorcycles, and more recreational vehicles and boat trailers on the roadways. This combination of multiple vehicle types contributes to more speed variations on the highways and that translates to more problems. State troopers were out in force this past weekend doing their best to help maintain a margin of safety for motorists.

“Wyoming has had a tough month of May, with twelve (12) fatalities in nine (9) separate crashes to date, so having a fatality free Memorial Day Weekend is a much needed change of direction,” Jones said. As always, motorists are encouraged to slow down, buckle up, and turn off their cell phones while traveling during these busy summer months.
