UHP Urges Drivers: Get Out of Traffic After Minor Crash
Rules to follow after a minor crash and why it can save a life
Troopers and first responders are willing to put their lives on the line to protect the lives of those in need, however, many times the risk posed to first responders is unnecessary. This is why the Utah Highway Patrol wants to remind drivers: if you are involved in a minor crash and can safely drive your vehicle, please get out of traffic.
Moving minor crashes off the roadway is one of the most important things members of the motoring public can do to protect our first responders and themselves.
Each year Utah’s first responders are hurt or injured responding to crashes that could and should have been moved out of traffic. Please help us educate drivers and prevent an unnecessary risk.
WHEN: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29 AT 9:00 A.M.
WHERE: 4501 south 2700 west, Taylorsville, Utah
