UHP Participates In Nationwide Crackdown On Distracted Driving
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – On the Road to Zero Fatalities, troopers have been out in force looking for distracted drivers.
Utah Highway Patrol spent the final day of April taking part in a coast-to-coast crackdown on distracted driving.
UHP said troopers spent extra time on Utah interstates looking for drivers using their phones while behind the wheel.
Great work Utah! Despite our best efforts, all we found were lots of drivers with their hands at 10 and 2…and a lot of rain.#CoasttoCoastDontDriveDistracted @ga_dps @TNHighwayPatrol @mshpTrooperGHQ @kshighwaypatrol @CSP_News @WYhighwayPatrol @ISPDistrict4 @ORStatePolice pic.twitter.com/PVkmun68Rq
