Speed plays a major role in many fatal motor vehicle accidents

Media campaigns by Colorado law enforcement agencies and advocacy groups focus on the dangers of texting while driving and drunk driving, as they should. However, one major factor in many fatal motor vehicle accidents does not seem to get the attention it deserves -- speed. The higher the rate of speed, the less control a driver actually has over his or her vehicle, but many people either do not realize that or forget it.

Winter weather can lead to fatal motor vehicle accidents

The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping. Here in Colorado, that means that winter weather will be around for a few months. Now would be a good time for a reminder about driving in it since not being prepared could lead to serious and even fatal motor vehicle accidents.

2017 was a bad year for fatal motor vehicle accidents in Colorado

For over a decade, the year 2004 held the record for deaths on the roads of Colorado. Sadly, 2017 broke that record with an increase in fatal motor vehicle accidents from the previous year. In fact, since 2014, the percentage of fatalities rose around 29 percent.
