Driving in The Wind

By  | 

Cheyenne, Wyo. - Semi-trucks and other high profile vehicles continue to blow over because of the winds.

There were at least 11 blow overs this week.

The Wyoming Department of Transportation wants drivers to make sure they are checking the weather conditions before driving, since driving in windy conditions is not worth the risk that comes along with it.

Wyoming Highway Patrol's Safety Education Coordinator Sergeant Momen Elazizi says,

"If they start driving and they come to an area where they need to pull over- they need to exit and remain in a parking lot until the wind dies."
