Cheyenne – The Wyoming Highway Patrol will be participating in the nationwide May Mobilization Seat Belt Enforcement campaign, which starts at 12:00 a.m. May 20th and ends at midnight June 2nd.
The campaign focuses on “High Visibility Enforcement” during the Memorial Day Holiday period. Law Enforcement officers across the State of Wyoming and the United States, will unite their efforts in an attempt to reduce the number of unrestrained fatalities and injuries associated with vehicle crashes.
"The best way for us to accomplish this task, is to take a “Zero Tolerance” stance towards those drivers and passengers who fail to buckle up while operating or riding in a vehicle", says Wyoming Highway Patrol Lieutenant Colonel Shannon Ratliff.
Beginning this week, all Troopers in the State have been issued new decals to install on their patrol vehicle. The decals represent our partnership with the Wyoming Seat Belt Coalition, and our mutual commitment to reducing fatalities through education and enforcement of seat belt/child restraint statutes, and our zero tolerance stance on non-compliance.
You can help protect your friends and family when you lead by example and remind others to buckle up. It turns out 9 out of 10 people fasten their seatbelt when asked to do so. So speak up and buckle up, every time on every trip.
