THE UTAH HIGHWAY PATROL SAYS LAST MONTH WAS THE DEADLIEST -- ON OUR STATE'S ROADS -- IN NEARLY NINE YEARS.

36 PEOPLE DIED IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENT IN JUNE... THE HIGHEST FATALITY TOTAL SINCE AUGUST 2005.

AS THIS HOLIDAY TRAVEL WEEKEND ARRIVES, THE U-H-P SAYS WE ALREADY KNOW THE COMMON SENSE SAFETY RULES: DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE... TEXT AND DRIVE... OR DRIVE WHEN YOU'RE TIRED.

ALSO, OBEY SPEED LIMITS -- PARTICULARLY IN UNPREDICTABLE ROAD REPAIR ZONES -- AND WEAR YOUR SEAT BELT.
