*(Fremont County, Wyo.) *- Every law enforcement agency in Fremont County will be working overtime this weekend with a specific goal: Zero DUI's and Zero Deaths in our community! Injury Prevention Resources
#IPR wants our
community to know that Fremont County law enforcement officers will be
looking for drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or not wearing
seat belts, Feb. 5-7 during the weekend of the Big Game. The agencies will
be working together as part of a county-wide, multi-agency seat belt and
DUI enforcement operation.

working to save lives:

deaths involved alcohol, drugs or both. Not one of the 17 Fremont County

Motorists who show signs of alcohol and/or drug consumption will be
evaluated, and appropriate enforcement action will be taken.

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
