Yellowstone To Conduct Safety Checks This Weekend

Yellowstone National Park rangers will be conducting safety and sobriety checkpoints in the park over Memorial Day weekend. Rangers will be looking for traffic and safety violations and for impaired drivers.

Park staff members are very committed to safety and safe driving in the park. With over 300 miles of paved roads, Yellowstone has some unique driving conditions. 

Visitors are reminded that federal law requires the occupants of vehicles to wear seatbelts when driving on park roads.
