In the first time in 12 years, Memorial Day passed without a single death on Idaho highways.
The Idaho Transportation Department says there were no traffic fatalities over the holiday weekend reporting period, which is considered from 6 p.m. on Friday to 6 a.m. on Tuesday. That's compared with six traffic-related deaths last year.
This is only the fourth time in more than 25 years without Memorial Day highway fatalities. The other years were 1982, 1987 and 1997.
