This spring we visited Salt Lake City. I must admit that I am fearful of traveling the roads of Utah, especially around Salt Lake City. I am a retired Marine Corps officer with two tours in Vietnam. I felt safer hunting the enemy in the jungles than I do on Utah roads. I take alternate routes whenever I can. I have never witnessed such blatant disregard for the rules of the road, such reckless and discourteous behavior. My daughter was purposely forced off the road by a 16-wheel semitrailer truck, making threatening gestures to her.
I have traveled every state in the West, and Utah has the worst drivers, with Los Angeles a close second. This spring, as usual, we did not see a single Highway Patrol on the road. My daughter tells me of the carnage on the roads near Orem. You need to take effective action to stop this disgrace.
