"It's a simple decision every time you climb behind the wheel, or when you're a passenger, front seat or back seat. Buckle up!" said Cody Beers, Wyoming Department of Transportation public relations specialist in Riverton. "This campaign is aimed at our young people, but it applies to all drivers. For many of us, the single-most dangerous thing we will do on any given day is climbing in vehicles and driving somewhere."
