Zero Fatality Shares Ground Rules Reminders Ahead of ‘100 Deadliest Days’
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and the Department of Public Safety (DPS) are urging motorists to stay safe on Utah’s roads with a new zero-casualty « Back to Basics » campaign.
This new campaign was announced ahead of Memorial Day, a major travel holiday for many Utah residents, to remind travelers to prioritize safe driving. The time period between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day is known as the « 100 Deadliest Days, » when road fatalities nearly double from the rest of the year. The top four causes of all Utah freeway crashes are following too closely, failing to yield, driving too fast for the conditions, and making unsafe lane changes/failing to stay in the correct lane.
