Denver sees its share of traffic fatalities within the city limits each year. Those numbers are always troubling, and some would say that the numbers of pedestrians who lose their lives is particularly troublesome. This is especially true as the number of pedestrian accidents continues to rise in Colorado's second largest city.
Here in the wild states that make up the American Southwest and Midwest, long stretches of highway may run hundreds of miles, connecting small communities and major cities, and carving through mountains and plains alike. While these roadways are certainly beautiful to take in, they are also potentially very dangerous, especially when sharing the road with large commercial trucks.
It is that time of year again here in Colorado. Winter weather could strike at any time, making the roadways even more dangerous than usual. One concern that many drivers have is the potential increase in accidents due to inclement weather. This concern may be even higher when it comes to the possibility of truck crashes.
