SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — Police in South Salt Lake will be increasing enforcement on 3300 S after an analysis of crash totals showed a disproportionate amount of crashes occurring there.

According to a press release, 38 percent of crashes that occurred in South Salt Lake last year were on 3300 S between 700 E and the Jordan River.

“They’re totally avoidable. People just pay attention, never insist on the right-of-way, leave yourself good stopping room distance between the car in front of you and just mainly pay attention. That’s all it would take to reduce these accidents,” said Gary Keller, South Salt Lake Police Department.

Police said drivers can expect to see increased enforcement in a seven-block area around 3300 S and I-15 in the months ahead.
