High-speed Pursuit On Highway 93 Proves Why These Are The 100 Deadliest Days
We rode along with Twin Falls County law enforcement officers for a patrol of Highway 93 in southern Idaho. What you're about to see will help you understand why summer is considered the 100 days of deadliest driving.
The radar locked in on a driver who was going 86 mph in a 65 mph area. After the officer hits his lights and siren, the driver continues his high rate of speed heading north on 93 in southern Idaho just a few miles north of the Idaho/Nevada border.
Fortunately, this driver eventually pulls over. However, these situations are one of the reasons why the time period from Memorial Day to Labor Day is referred to as the 100 deadliest days.
