All state troopers on patrol for Labor Day Weekend

Sep 2, 2011

 For those of you planning a road trip this Labor Day weekend, here's a reminder to buckle up and mind the speed limit.
 Sgt. Stephen Townsend of the Wyoming Highway Patrol says troopers will be out in full-force until Tuesday.

"Yeah with the increased folks out on the road, it's just to make sure everyone has a safe weekend. We want to reduce injuries out on the highway and, most importantly, save lives."

Townsend says all troopers, with limited exceptions, will be required to work this weekend.

This weekend last year, troopers issued more than two-thousand-five-hundred speeding tickets, almost 300 seatbelt citations and arrested 36 impaired drivers.
