Laramie County Drivers Warned To ‘Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over’
The three organizations are participating in the statewide "Drive Sober Or Get Pulled Over" campaign.
People Who Plan To Drink Urged To Avoid Driving
Those who plan on drinking are being urged to take advantage of one of several options:
- Take public transportation or find someone else to drive you home. Don't risk hurting yourself or others by getting behind the wheel when you've been drinking.
- Use ride-share services like Lyft or Uber instead of driving yourself home after a night out.
- If you see a suspected drunk driver on the road, contact local law enforcement immediately.
Besides the patrol, Cheyenne Police Department spokeswoman Alex Farkas and Laramie County Sheriff's Office spokesman Brandon Warner on Wednesday confirmed that their agencies are joining in the enforcement effort, as are law enforcement agencies across Wyoming.
Drunk driving is a persistent problem in the Cowboy State, with numerous surveys ranking Wyoming as among the worst states for impaired drivers. Despite numerous educational and law enforcement efforts over the years, the problem does not seem to be decreasing according to available information.
