According to a recent study, Wyoming is worst in the nation for response times for road emergencies.
The Casper Star-Tribune reported that a national study by Auto Insurance Center using National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data concluded that the slow response times are likely due to Wyoming being a large state with low population density.
According to the study, Wyoming had an average emergency response time of 36 minutes, well below the second-longest average of 23 minutes in Vermont.
Sgt. David Wagener says he predicts response times on highways will shorten because the Highway Patrol is currently training about 20 new troopers.
