This weekend wraps up the travel season when fatalities on Utah’s roads practically double on average. “As we approach Labor Day we also conclude the 100 Deadliest Days of the year for travelers in Utah,” shares Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Kellie Oaks. “We would like to wish you a happy Labor Day and encourage you to reduce your speed, increase your following distance, and buckle up as you enjoy your final holiday of the summer.” Earlier this month, the Zero Fatalities campaign reported that there had been 136 lives lost on Utah roads so far in 2019. While no lives lost is acceptable it is thankfully lower than the average. In fact, as of August 1st there had been a drop in fatalities for the 100 Deadliest Days by 42 percent this year. Sadly, since that time, there has been at least two fatal crashes on Highway 40 alone. Buckle up, pay attention, and travel safe!
