Wyoming Highway Patrol

For the first year ever, Wyoming and South Dakota Highway Patrols joined up to patrol on the Interstate-90 corridor into the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

This is the 73rd  year the well-known rally has been held in  South Dakota. The number of people attending the rally was probably lower than usual, says Sargent John Townsend of the Wyoming Highway Patrol.

But the number of arrests were lower, too.  He attributes the rally's quiet mood this year to the stronger enforcement presence on the roads.
