Utah, March 6, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The Utah Highway Patrol is warning drivers that a National Guard convoy will be traveling through the state this weekend.

“We are asking the public to exercise patience and caution while approaching, driving near and/or passing the Utah National Guard convoy as it travels throughout the state this weekend,” said a tweet from the UHP. “An increased following distance behind the military vehicles is advised.”

When passing, understand that the vehicles have large blind spots and may not signal lane change intentions in a traditional manner, the tweet goes on.

“Please help keep our Utah National Guard members safe while they are conducting this important and necessary training throughout the state,” the tweet said.

Officials did not say exactly what the route of the convoy would be.
