The average number of daily vehicle miles registered-'according to type with 1960 mileage figures first followed by, 1970 is: .-. .Utah- passenger cars-, 517,7 and 777.2 miles; out-of-state cars, 45.8 and 41.5; light -trucks, 64.7 and 154; heavy trucks, 55 and 59.4. . , -'•:• : SOME Statistics are shown -only for travel on federal-aid, interstate, primary and secondary- roads, -,, the; 1 foundation said. 'Figure's for travel on' residential city streets and county rural roads were not reported.. Statewide, vehicle travel on • highways increased 57 per cent in toe past decade, with daily average traffic -volumes totaling 8.5 million vehicle miles a day in I960 and 13.4 million in 1970. " , Foundation analysts said the designated mileage on,Utah's highway system increased only, about 4.3 per cent between 1960 and 1970. MORE CROWDED • This would indicate that the .highways are much more.-crowded today than 10 years -ago, an.. alysts.-said.... -' '-":' ' In 1960, only a smajl part of the federal interstate ,--system . had been built in Utah.

Statewide, light truck travel increased 158 per cent between 1960 and 1970, a rate of nearly three times the average of all vehicle types. INCREASING FASTER Urban traffic is increasing faster than rural .traffic, the foundation .said. Travel in-rural areas rose 27 per cent compared to 141 per cent in urban areas within the decade. However, analysts said travel -in 'rural areas - accounts for nearly ~60 per cent of the 1 total state traffic volume .due, of course, to' the large amount- of 'through traffic. • Four counties-along the Wasatch Front—Weber,,Davis, Salt 'Lake-and.Utah—accounted for 58,6 per-cent of-the-.state's total travel volume duringl970. Nearly, 77.6. per, cent of. the state's population: resides within the four counties.
