Inexperienced Behind the Wheel

(COLO) – Drivers build habits over time; the question is, will those habits be hazardous?

This is when a person begins to increase the frequency of driving, traveling new routes, and as a result, encountering more road hazards, including changing weather.

Summer Season Requires People to Share the Roads

(COLO) – Heading into the final weeks of summer, the Colorado State Patrol is sending a stern reminder to motorists and pedestrians that roadways are often more congested during warmer months with longer daylight hours.

Sightseeing While Super Cruising in CO
