Anyone who has faced criminal charges understands that it’s an extremely stressful situation. A criminal conviction can destroy your life, negatively impact your reputation, diminish your ability to earn a living, and even take your freedom away.
Wyoming is famous for many things, not least of which are its wide-open roads and breathtaking landscape. From Fort Laramie in the east to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone in the west, Wyoming offers visitors and residents alike an amazing experience.
But what many people don’t know is that Wyoming is also infamous for another reason: it is the most dangerous state in America in terms of DUIs.
When it comes to getting an insurance settlement for your injury, whether you were hit by another driver or broke some bones at your jobsite, remember to “tread wisely” on social media. Even if you don’t have social media accounts of your own, your family or friends might, and what they post can also hurt you. Here’s our advice for maximizing your chances of a successful claim…
College isn’t for everyone. Though lots of jobs nowadays require four-year degrees, there are still great ones that don’t, ones that you learn the old-fashioned way: by doing them.

But while all this livestock is definitely interesting to watch, there are times when they cause trouble for us on the road.
Wyoming is known for many things. A quick drive around just about any area of the state will show off beautiful scenery, farms, ranches, oil fields, refineries, mine shafts, and wells.
We’ve all encountered intersections that are clearly more prone to accidents than others. Data from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently identified the most dangerous intersections in each of the U.S. states, and it determined that where Central Avenue crosses Yellowstone Road in Cheyenne was the single most dangerous intersection in Wyoming. It appears that the second most dangerous intersection is where Dell Range Boulevard crosses Converse Avenue, also in Cheyenne.
Did you know that Wyoming produces the largest volume of coal of any state in the U.S.? Probably. And you probably also know that coal mining is an industry well-known for injuries, deaths, and serious long-term illnesses among workers. In 2017, there were 15 coal-mining fatalities: five in Wyoming, eight in West Virginia, and two in Kentucky. In 2016, there were only eight.
Wyoming has a progressive program in place for first-time offenders. The state’s Youthful Offender Program, commonly referred to as Boot Camp, is a six-month program that emphasizes rehabilitation rather than punishment. When it comes to drug offenses, most people charged are non-violent and in need of serious help. Is prison the best place for them?
