As part of a countywide, multi-agency impaired driving enforcement effort over the July 4 weekend, Sheridan county law enforcement increased patrols and challenged the public to Drive Sober or get Pulled Over, according to a Wyoming Department of Transportation press release. This high-visibility enforcement effort was surrounded by a media campaign that emphasized law enforcement’s zero-tolerance stance for those driving impaired.
Over the July 4 holiday, the focus was on stopping impaired driving, but area law enforcement also urged drivers to obey all traffic laws and always buckle up. No traffic fatalities occurred during the July 2-5, operation in Sheridan County, according to the press release.
The July 4, weekend operation was the fifth of six planned operations in Sheridan County and next up will be Drive Sober or get Pulled Over, over Labor Day weekend.
Along with this enhanced enforcement effort, the Wyoming Highway Patrol is urging drivers to help keep Wyoming’s roadways safe by calling the Report Every Drunk Driver Immediately (REDDI) hotline number at 1-800-442-9090 to report suspected drunk drivers. Callers should be prepared to provide the dispatcher with a description of the vehicle, its location, and direction of travel.
