State works to increase awareness of drugged driving


November 8, 2018

GILLETTE — In 2017, 13 percent of the 475 arrests in Campbell County for driving while under the influence involved drugs, a percentage that has steadily increased since the Wyoming Association of Sheriffs and Chiefs of Police started collecting statistics about seven years ago.

Campbell County isn’t alone in experiencing an uptick in drugged driving.

Across Wyoming since 2010, the percent of alcohol-involved arrests have decreased, while the percent of drug-involved arrests has increased. In 2010, 8.39 percent of the state’s DUI arrests involved drugs. In 2017, it was 14.5 percent.
