FREMONT COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
PRESS RELEASE

     The Labor Day “Step Wave” is starting August 19, 2022, through September 5, 2022. This “Step Wave” is going to be focused on Impaired Drivers. So far in 2021 we have had four motor vehicle deaths in Fremont County. Three of the deaths were caused by impaired drivers.  

 

     So far this year in Fremont County there have been seventy-three total accidents involving one-hundred and three vehicles, with twenty-one injuries including five serious injuries.  

 

     We will be using STEP funds to pay for extra overtime during this Wave with the purpose of finding impaired drivers.

 

     Always remember to plan ahead if you will be celebrating with an impairing substance.  If you plan to indulge, plan for a sober driver to take you home.  Call someone to give you a ride if you feel impaired!  Is it your turn to be the designated driver?  Take the role seriously and do not partake in alcohol or any other drugs,
