We are in the middle of the 100 Deadliest Days of Summer, but you can help turn that into the 100 Safest Days!

Katie Marble with Zero Fatalities stopped by to share important information on how to do that.  She says,"Human error causes 94% of all crashes. Driving during the summer months, Utah drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and people riding motorcycles and bicycles each need to practice improving their roadway safety, by changing individual behaviors.  Each one of us make all the difference."

"Anything that takes your active attention away from the road is a distraction! In 4.6 seconds, your car going 60 MPH travels more than the length of a football field!", Marble adds.

She also told us about a life-changing tool to help us all make each drive our safest: The DO NOT DISTURB mode on our phones.
