The Colorado State Patrol Asks Drivers to Watch Their Lane Positioning

(COLO) – If you hold a valid driver’s license, chances are pretty high that the driving instructor or manual you read to prepare you for driving covered the importance of being intentional about where you placed your vehicle in the lane as you were driving. Earlier today, the Colorado State Patrol reminded drivers that the primary lane position for your vehicle in normal circumstances is the center of the lane. This helps ensure that drivers are reducing their risk of costly and potentially deadly collisions.

Eleven of those crashes (52%) involved drivers crossing the center line of their lane or the exterior lane line.

Its Time to Talk to Your Kids About Road Safety When Cycling
