SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – After a deadly year for motorcyclists in Utah, the Utah Department of Public Safety offered a warning and safety tips to drivers and motorcyclists Saturday.

In 2018, deaths among motorcyclists rose to 47 from 39 in 2017. That’s the highest spike in the last five years, with 2014 coming the closest with 45 deaths.

As the weather warms this spring, more motorcycles will be out on the roads. Authorities warned drivers to look twice especially before turning and making lane changes.
