The NPS is reminding people that as the weather begins shifting "from hot to comfortable," visitors still need to use common-sense safety precautions. Although it's cooler now than it was 3 months ago, temps are still in the triple-digits Fahrenheit or 40s Celsius.
The NPS also wants to remind people to drive safely. A tour bus accident a couple weeks ago injured several people on Badwater Road, and it isn't a unique incident. People get distracted by the majestic scenery and gawk themselves right off the road. Single vehicle accidents are the most common cause of deaths in the park.
