What's known as the '100 Deadliest Days' are coming to a close this Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, as state law enforcement officials look at previous years they're seeing an increase of deaths on the roads.
"A lot of them are speeding, a lot of inappropriate and unsafe lane changes on the interstate," said Idaho State Police Patrol Trooper Eric Pesina.
Speeding and other infractions are just two things ISP look out for, especially during the days between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
"We're looking for a lot of distracted driving," Pesina said.
The deaths of two people riding on a motorcycle on I-84 Saturday brought the death total this summer to 95. That's almost one death a day.
"A lot of these people, they're family," said Pesina. "They're either a mother or a father to somebody, a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister. It's tough."
Believe it or not, Pesina says they're seeing a lot of drivers and passengers not wearing seatbelts.
"You end up going off the side of the interstate at 65 to 70 plus miles per hour, the vehicle is going to roll," said Pesina. "If you're not wearing a seatbelt you're going to get ejected."
A major cause of the accidents ISP is seeing are a result of distracted driving.
"This day and age with the technology that we have a lot of people have their cellphones and navigational systems stuff like that in their vehicles that takes away the attention that they need to be giving the road," said Pesina. "They veer off to the side of the road and they overcorrect and that's where the accidents happen."
Another common cause, especially during long holiday weekends, is driving while under the influence.
"Driving under the influence can be alcohol, it can be marijuana or any other illegal drug," said Pesina.
Sunday morning, three people were hospitalized after a rollover accident where alcohol was involved.
"To be honest with you there's no reason why a person should be driving under any kind of influence," said Pesina. "We have Uber, we have taxis we have all those services available. Go have a good time but be responsible."
While the '100 Deadliest Days' are coming to a close, Pesina says exercising good driving habits should be happening all year round.
