‘Report Every Drunk Driver Immediately (Reddi)’ Program 2009 Statistics
by Wyoming Highway Patrol
March 9, 2010

Cheyenne – The Wyoming Highway Patrol is proud to announce the continued success of the "Report Every Drunk Driver Immediately (REDDI)" program. The program started September 1, 1982. The REDDI program is designed to give the public a readily accessible tool to report suspected impaired drivers by calling a toll free number of #HELP (cell phone), 1-800-442-9090, or 911. The reports are directed to the proper agency where the suspect vehicle is traveling and Law Enforcement officers are dispatched. The reports can be made anonymously to protect the caller’s identity, if requested.

In 2009, travelers throughout the state made 7,247 reports of suspected impaired drivers. Law enforcement officers contacted 2,185 of the reported vehicles resulting in 739 arrests for Driving While Under the Influence.

Since the inception of the program, 200,726 reports have been made resulting in 46,001 contacts and 18,116 arrests. This is a tremendous effort on the part of the motoring public and our Law Enforcement officers who are out there protecting the citizens of Wyoming.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol would like to encourage the public to continue the use of the REDDI program in an effort to keep our highway safe for all.
