Forum Highlights New Safety Laws
AAA Utah is joining forces with the Utah Highway Patrol, the Utah Highway Safety Office and the Coalition for Utah Traffic Safety to host a series of informational forums on Utah's new traffic safety laws.
The forums are designed to assist officers who will enforce the new laws including testing for alcohol levels in blood and breath, violations for failure to use child safety restraints and left lane restrictions. Enforcement of state's graduated driver license laws will also be discussed.
"The new traffic safety laws will be the focus of these meetings," said Rolayne Fairclough, AAA Utah spokeswoman. "Utah's law enforcement and traffic safety leaders will highlight the new laws, answer questions, and share their perspective on how these new laws can make our streets more safe for motorists and pedestrians."
The forum in the Castle Valley area will be held June 24 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Greenwell Inn in Price.
Handouts for officers include a quick reference guide highlighting the changes as well as a more detailed digest of changes to the Utah vehicle and related codes. Refreshments will also be served.
