Wyoming troopers catch trucker nearing triple digit speed limit violation on I-80

Published:

The Wyoming Highway Patrol (WHP) recently ticketed a truck driver for exceeding the speed limit by more than 20 m.p.h.

In a March 26 social media post, the WHP detailed a traffic stop that occurred near Evanston, Wyoming.

From WHP:

A Trooper on patrol east of Evanston on I-80 pulled over a Commercial Motor Vehicle for driving 99 MPH in a 75 MPH zone.

The area where the traffic stop occurred is known to many as “The Sisters” and is notorious for slick conditions during winter weather. The driver received a $475 citation.

WHP would like to remind drivers of all vehicles to obey the speed limit and never drive faster than conditions allow.

Earlier this month, a truck driver in a bobtail Peterbilt was caught doing 101 m.p.h. by the Nebraska State Patrol.
