Authorities to increase DUI enforcement for Colorado State-Wyoming football game

LARAMIE, Wyo. — Authorities in neighboring Wyoming counties are increasing their presence to prevent people from driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs traveling to and from the Border War rivalry football game between Colorado State and Wyoming.

The Laramie Boomerang reports Laramie Police Department chief Dale Stalder said the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Albany County Sheriff’s Office and Laramie Police Department are teaming up to increase DUI patrols on U.S. Highway 287, Interstate 80 and Interstate 25 during Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Stalder said the Laramie Police Department’s jurisdiction has not changed for the Border War DUI enforcement and officers would mostly be focused on enforcing traffic laws within Laramie city limits.
