Governor Matt Mead announced Monday that the Governor’s Council on Impaired Driving is launching a statewide campaign to reduce drunk driving related fatalities and injuries in Wyoming. Mead was a guest on Monday's Public Pulse program on News Talk 930 KROE, where he said that something has to change.
Sheridan Police Chief Richard Adriaens says that the initiative is aimed at saving lives by encouraging people to make the right decision about driving impaired.
While the County wide statistics won't be available for another month, Chief Adriaens says alcohol plays a big role in Sheridan regarding injury accidents.
The Governor's Council on Impaired Driving was created by Executive Order on September 16, 2011 to work on ways to make Wyoming’s highways safer through educational programs, proposed legislative changes and partnering with law enforcement for increased focused patrols.
