Wyoming troopers are reminding truckers that there can be costly consequences for taking “country and dirt roads” to get around a winter weather interstate closure.
On January 13, Wyoming Highway Patrol – Commercial Carrier took to social media with the following message:
Your GPS is wrong!
These pictures were taken by one of our Port Officers just outside Evanston, Wyoming. Commercial drivers thought it would be a better idea to take county and dirt roads around an interstate closure. Needless to say it was a very expensive endeavor.
Never try to drive around a winter interstate closure. Keep up-to-date on all current conditions by checking www.wyoroads.info and please drive safe.
