What level of impairment results in liability for a crash?

In 2016, over 7,000 people were arrested during the "Heat Is On" campaign in Colorado. This campaign had 12 periods during which it ran. This campaign increases overall DUI enforcement, resulting in more stops and arrests. Two-hundred and seventy-two people who were impaired were caught on New Year's last year, a slight reduction from the 396 in 2015. In total, 102 agencies participated in the campaign, with 30 arrests taking place in Aurora and another 17 taking place in Denver.

Are Cell Phones More Distracting to Drivers than Pot?

Many things cause us to drive carelessly. No question about it, many distractions in the car exist like eating fast food, passengers (human or otherwise), putting on makeup, cell phones, music and a host of other creative activities. A driver's mental state can also negatively impact driving behavior.  A few examples include feeling overly tired, angry, emotional or just lacking a plan as to where you're going can cause us to drive carelessly.  Unfortunately, any one of these careless or distracted behaviors may cause someone to swerve, over-correct or drive too slowly or too fast.  While these careless acts rarely result in fatalities, driving while intoxicated often kills.  Drunk driving is the most dangerous careless activity you can engage in as one person is killed every 50 minutes in a drunk driving accident. (NHTSA, 2017)

Cyclists have as much of a right to be on the roads as anyone else. They are on a vehicle, just like you're behind the wheel of a car. Despite this, drivers sometimes treat cyclists like they're in the way or should not be on the roads. That simply isn't true.

Winter driving: A hazard for all on the roads

When winter arrives, it makes the roads dangerous. Between freezing rains and blizzards with high winds, drivers have their work cut out for them. If they're not paying attention or slowing down for the conditions, they could end up putting their lives or the lives of others at risk.
