“As part of a county-wide, multi-agency Impaired Driving Enforcement Operation this past Labor Day weekend, Natrona County law enforcement stopped 250 vehicles and arrested 5 impaired drivers,” a Wednesday, Sept. 11 report from the Wyoming Department of Transportation says.
“Natrona County law enforcement agencies are working together as part of a county-wide, multi-agency, traffic enforcement effort for 2019. The Labor Day operation was the last of the six planned operations in Natrona County for the year. Next year’s operations will start with the New Year’s holiday.”
The operations are intended to reduce the number of fatal crashes.
“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 (800) 442-9090 to report suspected drunk drivers,” WYDOT adds. “Callers should be prepared to provide the dispatcher with a description of the vehicle, its location, and direction of travel.”
