Casper is the second largest city in Wyoming behind Cheyenne. It was established near the former location of Fort Caspar, which was a popular stopover for those migrating west via the Oregon, California and Mormon trails during the mid-1800s. Casper is located in the heart of the state and is nicknamed “The Oil City” because of its history as an oil boomtown, which dates back to the heyday of the Salt Creek Oil Field. As of the 2010 census, Casper had a population of 55,316.
Until of late, Casper had always been best known for its rich cowboy culture and its storied history as an oil boomtown, which is all on display in the Painted Past History Tours. Now, thanks to the development of its coal and uranium fields, Casper has become more well-known in recent decades for its role in those industries.
Several highways pass through Casper, including I-25, which runs from New Mexico to Wyoming as well as US 20, US 26 and US 87. In addition, Wyoming State Highways 220, 251, 252, 254, 255 and 258 all run either through or along the border of the town.
With so much wide-open space and so many highways to choose from, Casper provides motorcyclists with an endless array of riding options, which, in turn, exposes them to greater risk. The reason being, the more motorcyclists, cars, buses and trucks on the road, the greater the chances of a motorcyclist winding up the victim of a motorcycle accident or, worse yet, a fatal motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s negligence. If you or someone you love has suffered because of a motorcycle accident due to the fault of someone else, you may be entitled to compensation.
