Hi Highway Safety Partners,

I am so pleased to report that no traffic deaths occurred on Idaho highways during the Memorial Day weekend for the first time in 12 years.  Last year, six people died in five motor vehicle crashes on Idaho highways during the holiday reporting period, which began at 6 p.m. on the Friday before Memorial Day and concluded the following Tuesday at 6 a.m.   We looked back to 1981 and found only 3 years in which there were no traffic deaths during this busy travel holiday, 1982, 1987 and 1997.  The average toll for this holiday is 3.5 people killed.
