Utah Car Crashes In Cottonwood Canyon

KSL news reports that two men in their twenties were critically injured when the car they were driving went off a 100-foot embankment in Little Cottonwood Canyon September 26, 2010. According to Unified Police, the two men were speeding down the canyon around 5 p.m. The driver swerved to avoid a head-on collision with another car and lost control of the vehicle. The car flew down an embankment and came to a stop about 100 feet below the road. Speed was a factor in 30 percent of all traffic fatalities, second only to alcohol. Also, the financial cost of speeding-related accidents to victims is approximately $28 billion annually. Speeding enhances the chances of vehicular collisions and increases the severity of an injury. Drivers need to be more conscious about their speed. If we want to fight this deadly and grave practice, we need to submit ourselves to rules and support enforcement laws to monitor the roads. For every 10 mile per hour increase in speed, the impact of a car collision doubles. Speeding is also related to other hazardous driver practices. Some studies suggest that the majority of drivers who speed do not wear their seat belts.
