Buckle Up Wyoming

wyoming hpWyoming law enforcement will be participating in a national effort to increase seat belt use as the summer travel season picks up. The Click It or Ticket campaign will run statewide from May 23rd through June 5th. Police departments across the state and the country will receive funding for overtime hours to enforce impaired driving and seat belt laws during this time period. According to state officials of the 15 traffic fatalities in Wyoming so far this year, 12 of those individuals were not wearing seat belts. According to some estimates nationwide seat belt usage stands at about 87% but in Wyoming that number falls to 80%.
