Media Briefing: UDOT, UHP to Report on Highway Fatalities for 100 Deadliest Days

Media Briefing: UDOT, UHP to Report on Highway Fatalities for 100 Deadliest Days

Transportation and law enforcement leaders to highlight lifesaving behavior changes for drivers, passengers and motorcyclists  

WHAT: The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and the Utah Highway Patrol (UHP) will report on what has been a disappointing summer for driver, passenger and pedestrian fatalities on Utah roads from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day, known as the 100 Deadliest Days. The 100 Deadliest Days typically averages twice as many fatal crashes compared to the rest of the year.  This year Utah saw dramatic increases in motorcycle, unbuckled and aggressive driving fatalities.

With 94 percent of all crashes caused by human error, UDOT and UHP will challenge Utahns to do a better job with zero texting, zero distractions, zero driving under the influence, zero speeding and zero unbuckled passengers. University of Utah student Mariana Sablan will share how using her seat belt kept her from becoming a fatality this summer.

WHEN:           Wednesday, September 5, 2018, 10 – 11 a.m.

WHERE:         South Bountiful Auto 2166 W 2425 S, Woods Cross

WHO:              Mariana Sablan – Rollover survivor and seatbelt user

Col. Michael Rapich – Utah Highway Patrol
