Buzzed driving could cost you a pot of gold! #headsup

(Wyoming) - Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today's holiday means fun times for many families and friends. It also means a fair amount of people may be consuming alcohol. Throughout all of Wyoming, law enforcement will be looking for drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or not wearing safety belts. During the St. Patrick’s Day and weekend festivities, March 17-20, agencies across Wyoming will be increasing patrols and efforts. "Being part of #headsup, our mission is to help promote safety and awareness in our communities," explained Amy Kelly, HR Director of the Fremont Motor Company. "In Wyoming, our communities are small, which means we can look out for our friends and neighbors. We're encouraging folks to keep an eye on each other during the St. Patrick's Day festivities. Be #headsup and take care of one another."
