Governor Matt Mead says the number of highway fatalities has been decreasing.
"Wyoming began tracking highway fatalities in 1967 and if we finish the year up well we will have had 82 highway fatalities, which will be the lowest number since 1967," Mead said.
At this time last year, there were already 112 fatalities.
However, Mead warned that the holiday season tends to be the deadliest in Wyoming and drivers can expect a lot of enforcement out on the roads to help keep that number from growing.
Gov. Matt Mead says he will implement recommendations from a new report focused on improving safety for workers.
Wyoming has one of the nation’s highest rates of workplace fatalities, and the governor recently commissioned a study to figure out why.
