While traveling in Yellowstone, drivers will see an increase in ranger presence on the roads.
Yellowstone National Park law enforcement will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints this week, the National Park Service announced Monday.
Rangers will be watching for driver and vehicle safety violations as well as impaired driving. Park officials also remind visitors that seat belts are required to be worn by all occupants on all roads.
Driving conditions in the park can be uniquely challenging due to high traffic volume, animals present on roads and changing weather conditions. Staff are committed to safety and safe driving, the announcement said.
