Former Insurance Defense Attorney Fighting For You

Has legalized marijuana led to more deadly accidents?

Colorado legalized marijuana, allowing for a regulated industry in which people can buy small amounts for recreational purposes. By no means does this indicate that marijuana can be used without restraint, however. Some aspects of the law mimic laws surrounding the use of alcohol. For instance, impaired driving is still illegal.

Lack of seatbelts and distraction are a deadly combo

Driving is a part of everyday life for most people in Colorado. You may not think about all the dangers you face every time you get behind the wheel, but by neglecting simple cautions, you can put yourself and others on the road at risk. When multiple safety hazards intersect, it can be a particularly dangerous situation. This is the case in car accidents involving distracted drivers and lack of seatbelts. 

Could this dangerous intersection be a risk for crashes?

Some places on the road are more likely than others to see an accident. Smart drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists know to avoid these areas or keep watch for hazards when passing through them. As the number of cyclists in Colorado increase, awareness of these trouble spots will only increase in importance.
