Don’t Have an “Eclipse” in Judgement

Solar Eclipse 2017

Today Utah will experience a partial solar eclipse. We want to remind drivers not to  have an “eclipse” in judgement during that brief event. Keep the following in mind if you’re driving this morning:
  • Don’t stop along the interstate or park on the shoulder during the event.
  • Exit the highway to safe location to view and/or photograph the eclipse.
  • Don’t take photographs while driving!
  • Don’t try to wear opaque eclipse glasses while operating a vehicle.
  • Watch out for pedestrians along smaller roads. People may be randomly parking and walking alongside the roadside in the hours around the eclipse to get the best view.
  • Prepare for extra congestion on the interstates after the eclipse.
  • Avoid travel during the eclipse if you can.
