Rock Springs is the fifth-largest city in Wyoming, with a population of around 25,000. After two decades of population decline Rock Springs grew by 23% between 2000 and 2010. It is also a multicultural city, owing to the vast number of immigrants from all over the world that were drawn to the city’s coal industry jobs. The annual “International Day” festival celebrates this diversity and draws visitors from all over the state. “Wyoming’s Big Show” is also held in the city and is a popular tourist draw. So, while the city might not have a large population, it can attract a large number of drivers throughout the year. This tends to raise the rate of auto accidents and has an impact on local insurance rates.
