Colorado residents face growing risk in high drivers

Colorado made headlines when it became the first state in the nation to legalize the recreational use of pot. Regardless of whether or not someone agrees with that decision, there are numerous ways that this decision may impact people, even those who may chose not to use marijuana themselves. One of these is when an accident occurs that involves a high driver.

Rural areas are more dangerous for car accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 15,000 fatal traffic accidents occurred in 2014 on roadways in the United States, comprising about 50 percent of all fatal traffic accidents in the country. This is an alarming figure, considering just 19 percent of American citizens live in rural areas yet half of all fatal accidents occur on rural roads. It highlights the very real danger that unfamiliar drivers face when they must cross through rural areas in Colorado during their travels.

Remote sensing technology in autonomous cars

In Colorado and across the nation, people's opinions of self-driving cars run the gamut from great excitement to virtual fear of handing over responsibility for driving to a computer. Regardless of whether or not a person feels positively about autonomous vehicles, most people are interested in how safe these vehicles really might be. Understanding some of the technologies to be put to use in them can be important in assessing this.

What makes I-25 through Colorado so dangerous?

Back in 2009, the Denver 7 news station, dubbed the stretch of I-25 that runs between Sante Fe and the I-70 highway in Denver the most dangerous stretch of Colorado road. In 2017, nothing has changed. Many hundreds of crashes occur on this portion of the highway each year, including many vacationers to the state, or just passing through.

I-70: Colorado's most dangerous highway

For many travelers, Colorado is the dream vacation destination. In the winter months, visitors are able to enjoy some of the best skiing in the world atop the most majestic mountains. In the summer, the vistas that surround the Rocky Mountains cannot be beat. People hailing from across the globe set their sights on Colorado in hopes of hiking through the rugged trails that lead to the most breathtaking views.

Rear-end crash kills man, injures others

Across the state of Colorado, people were anxiously awaiting the Fourth of July holiday which for many people may have featured an extended weekend starting the Friday prior. Known to be a holiday during which a lot of folks take to the road, there may understandably be concerns about traffic accidents that could end up marring what should otherwise be a fun and enjoyable time.

Legalized marijuana linked to more accidents

The state of Colorado paved the way when it comes to legalizing the recreational use of marijuana a few years ago. Since then, seven other states along with the District of Columbia have followed suit. However, just as with drinking alcohol, this does not mean that drivers should feel free to smoke or consume any form of pot and then get behind the wheel of a vehicle. However, it may well be that some drivers are doing precisely that.

Where do you turn when injured in a parking lot or ramp?

The parking lot may seem like a gray area when it comes to liability for personal injury and eligibility for workers' compensation, but there's actually a set of standards to help individuals determine if they have a legal case against the property owner or employer. Parking lots are high-traffic areas with the potential for a variety of types of accidents and injuries, and it's critical that drivers, employees, property owners and employers understand the legalities surrounding these semi-public spaces.

Governor signs new distracted driving bill

For most people in Colorado, a cellphone has become something that is rarely out of an arm's reach or an eye's glance. The integration of these tools into daily life cannot be disputed and there can be benefits associated with that at times in terms of convenience if nothing else. However, there is also a very serious danger associated with the heavy reliance on smartphones in some situations, namely when a person is driving a vehicle.
