UHP motors enforcement in Utah County
Now that kids are back to school and summer activities are winding down, The Utah Highway Patrol is looking to end the “100 deadliest days” on a positive note. To accomplish this mission, the Utah Highway Patrol Motor squad has focused its attention on some of the most dangerous driving behaviors as they have conducted enforcement around the state. These behaviors range from reckless driving, distracted driving to speeding. We know that these driving habits often result in crashes and, at times, fatalities. As drivers, we all have the power to affect change on our roadways. It all starts with ourselves.
Tomorrow, 14 UHP motor officers will conduct an enforcement blitz in the Utah County area targeting the behaviors that cause crashes. This high visibility enforcement project will hopefully remind drivers to drive focused, drive buckled, and drive the speed limit. Our overall goal isn’t to write more tickets, it is to promote safe driving and to help change bad habits for ones that could potentially save a life.
The media is invited to attend this informal enforcement event. We can arrange ride-alongs for those interested.
