No Passing Zone Program (NPZS) Loan Program

The University of Wyoming, in cooperation with WYDOT, developed a device that utilizes the two-vehicle method for establishing passing/no passing zones on roadways. The WYT2 and WYDOT recreated the original No Passing Zone System (NPZS) to make it available for local governments in Wyoming. The development of the $10K system was made possible through WYDOT funding. 

If you are interested in using the NPZS, you will need to provide contact information and the estimated use time (up to two weeks). You will also need to state if you would like to pick it up at our Laramie office at no fee or have it delivered. There is a fee of $100 each way for that option. 

Use of the device is on a first-come-first-serve basis, and once it is returned, the next agency will be contacted. Each agency is responsible for returning the device by the agreed date, or WYT2 will assess a $25 per day late fee. These fees will be used for future maintenance and repair. Agencies will be held responsible for any damage or loss of the NPZS device. 

A training video will be made available with instructions on best practices for use and collecting data. 

To submit a request, complete the form linked below.
