Wyoming Highway Patrol Working To Improve I-80 Safety
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Highway Patrol is teaming up with other law enforcement in other states to help make Interstate 80 safer for travelers.
The campaign is called "I-80 Challenge Highway Safety Initiative." It seeks to ramp up enforcement of life-saving traffic safety laws from July 24-31.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials serving the I-80 corridor across the U.S. will be cracking down on drivers who are speeding, driving drunk or distracted, or not wearing a seat belt.
The goal is a zero fatality rate for the eight-day period.
Officials say too many lives are being lost on I-80 from those who violate the most basic traffic safety laws.
