This year could be the worst for deadly DUI crashes in Utah in recent memory, according to the Utah Department of Transportation.
Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol reported six fatalities since the start of the Labor Day weekend as their "Summer Safely" campaign comes to an end.
This year alone, 42 people who were not wearing a seatbelt have died on Utah roads. Two St. George teens said they're grateful they listened to their mom when she asked them to always buckle up.
Make sure you and your family know the steps to take to use crosswalks properly.
Being the father of not one but two teenage drivers, KSL’s Dan Spindle understands how scary it can be - and not just when they're behind the wheel. It's that car insurance bill that's scary, too.
UDOT said it will shut down east-west traffic on 6200 South at Bangerter Highway due to a rise in crashes caused by drivers speeding and running red lights.
State troopers spend a lot of time on the shoulder of the interstate, with motorists cruising by at 70 miles per hour, and often faster. Two Utah Highway Patrol troopers have been hit within the last several weeks, which is why troopers are urging everyone to slow down and move over before someone is seriously hurt.
With access to mountains, deserts, rivers, and lakes, summer in Utah is unlike anything else. No matter what you're towing — a camper, boat, or four wheelers — safety must be top of mind. General Sales Manager at General RV Zac Andersen explains how to "Summer Safely."
It has been a deadly weekend on Utah's roads. Officials with the Utah Highway Patrol reported five separate crashes, resulting in six deaths on Saturday and Sunday.
There has been a rash of trash on Utah's roads in recent years, and it's truly killing people. The Utah Department of Transportation launched a new campaign called "Keep it Clean, Utah" to encourage people to secure their loads and keep litter off the roads.
