Are pedestrian accidents a problem in Colorado?

As spring returns to Colorado, you may well find yourself out walking and enjoying the outdoors more than during the colder, darker winter months. You are not alone in this as many people all around the state are doing the same thing. While there is much joy and benefit to your health to be had in being outside and being active, there are also risks when you share the road with cars, trucks, SUVs and other vehicles. Pedestrians must be ever vigilant in protecting their safety whether in crosswalks, on sidewalks or even in parking lots.

Crash risks unique to large trucks

Driving a tractor trailer in Denver, Colorado, requires a specific set of skills, and before a person can acquire a commercial driver’s license, there is education that must be completed. This includes gaining both knowledge and hands-on experience. Even with the extra requirements, the number of fatalities in truck crashes continues to be high. The most recent statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration show that 3,903 people were killed in truck accidents in 2014. Of these, 2,857 were occupants of passenger vehicles.
