CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Troopers with the Wyoming Highway Patrol are starting special overtime patrols on Thanksgiving day that will continue through Christmas and New Year's Eve.

Troopers around the state will be working extra overtime hours either prior to or after their regularly scheduled shifts. They will be looking to stop speeders, impaired drivers and people not wearing their seat belts.

Lt. Col. Shannon Ratliff of the patrol says troopers will have a zero-tolerance policy for all alcohol-related violations as well as seat belt/child safety restraint violations.

The increased patrols will mainly be on the day of the holidays and on weekends.
