Memorial days is the start and Labor Day is the end of the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer in Utah. This is when the most car accidents happen and most people die in Utah. This campaign was a Zero Fatalities awareness campaign. It ran from Memorial Day to Labor Day from Salt Lake City to West Valley City and across Utah. The campaign was to promote road safety and have less fatalities on our highways.
Typically, people drive more and more each year in Utah. I think we need to continue the “Zero Fatalities” campaign. This brings awareness to the drivers in Utah. Even though the Zero Fatalities campaign is over, we can still make it a goal to have zero fatalities on the road. If you are mourning the wrongful death of a loved one, contact an attorney to help you heal. You may even have the opportunity to bring someone to justice.
Motorists Need To Pay Attention
Most of the people that die in the summer on Utah highways were motorists. We can each do our part to prevent auto accident cases. An easy way to prevent accidents is to stop driving distracted. Put away the phones, the GPS, and turn down the music.
Be aware of other motorists as you are driving. If you get in an auto accident because of another driver’s distracted driving, contact a lawyer to help you receive the compensation you deserve.
Look For Pedestrians
Eleven pedestrians were killed during the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer. It is necessary to be better aware of pedestrians. If you are in a high pedestrian traffic area, such as a college campus, be extra aware of pedestrians. Not all pedestrians will cross the street at the crosswalk.
If you are a pedestrian crossing the street, you can do your own part. Cross the street at the crosswalks. Before you cross, make eye contact with the driver of the car, so you are both aware of one another. If you are hit and suffer from a personal injury, a lawyer can help you determine the compensation for medical bills, and the pain and suffering.
Motorcyclists Are On The Road
Even motorcyclists are killed during summer. Before you jump on the freeway to ride your motorcycle to work, check the weather for the day. If it is raining later in the day, don’t risk it. Don’t drive reckless. If you are driving, be aware of motorcyclists. Always check your blind spot. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, a lawyer can help you with the aftermath.
Motorcycle Safety Course
Think you’re too good for a motorcycle safety course? Think again. Whether you’re a novice just starting out on a bike or an experienced motorcyclist, motorcycle safety courses are a great resource; motorcycle safety courses reduce the likelihood of incurring a motorcycle accident (and possible lawyer fees), and benefit riders both on and off the bike.
A motorcycle safety course is truly invaluable for new riders. Not only do safety courses inform new riders about the parts of the motorcycle, relevant laws and safety gear, participants receive hands-on training with course-provided bikes and apparel. Some states require the completion of a safety course for new riders, while others require it for riders under a certain age. In St. George or Salt Lake City Utah a motorcycle safety course is not required by law — but it’s still a good idea.
For experienced riders, a motorcycle safety course is a great way to brush up on old skills or hone new ones. Safety courses give experienced riders a chance to revisit the basics while simultaneously learning new safety maneuvers and crash avoidance tactics.
Many motorcycle manufacturers — such as Honda, Kawasaki & Harley Davidson — offer products reimbursements and discounts to people who have completed a motorcycle safety course; check with your local St. George dealerships. Some insurance providers also offer a discount on motorcycle insurance premiums, so you can pay less and relax in the event of a motorcycle accident — don’t worry about insurance, just focus on finding a good lawyer.
The Motorist Will Benefit
Even if you complete a motorcycle safety course and decide the motorcycle life isn’t for you, you still walk away with a valuable set of skills. Motorcycle safety experience helps drivers maneuver better through turns, keep watch for hazards and lower the risk of a motorcycle accident.
Avoid a crash and a call to your lawyer by keeping an eye out for motorcyclists; with a thorough understanding of a motorcyclist’s thought process, you can predict his next move — and plan accordingly.
