As you may be aware, we are in the range of Utah’s 100 Deadliest Days. If you’re unfamiliar with this, Utah’s 100 Deadliest Days are when car crashes nearly double on Utah’s roads. The 100 days go from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Don’t let your summer road trip turn into a tragedy this year! Take every precaution to keep yourself and your loved ones safe. Avoid these driving behaviors:
Distracted driving: This can include anything from answering a phone call to changing the music you’re listening to. If others in the car are distracting you, it’s important to communicate that so everyone in the car stays safe.
Drowsy driving: You may think you have the ability to drive while drowsy, but drowsy driving is how many accidents happen. If you’re feeling tired, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Pull over somewhere safe to take a nap or call it an early night at a hotel.
Driving without wearing a seatbelt: This is not only a hazard for yourself, but to everyone in the car with you. Buckle up, it’s the law.
