U.S. Forest Service Prohibits Off-Road Driving
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service is reminding the public that off-road driving is not allowed on the Medicine Bow National Forest in southeastern Wyoming.
Dry conditions so far this winter have left many roads open that usually are blocked by snow. Many roads are wet and muddy and the Forest Service says this may tempt people to try to drive off-road to drive around bad spots.
Laramie District Ranger Frank Romero says vandals have destroyed sections of fence that have been erected to keep them from driving off road. He says the agency is asking for people to report any vandalism they may witness and says people shouldn’t drive on muddy, rutted roads.
