It’s no secret that late summer is a great time to visit Yellowstone National Park. And, that means lots of traffic. With many people celebrating the Labor Day holiday, park officials say safety is a big concern. Park spokesman Amy Bartlett says that’s why park rangers and local law enforcement are working together to post traffic safety checkpoints along the park’s hundreds of miles of backroads.

Wyoming Highway Patrol

 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.
