Confirmed: Colorado Has Terrible Drivers

You've probably noticed it when you're driving - it's more dangerous on Colorado's roads than ever before. While the number of accidents is clearly on the rise, Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) and other agencies are at a loss for why there has been a historic rise in accidents this year.

The People Have Spoken: Users Weigh In On Causes Of Fatal Accidents

In a recent article and accompanying Facebook post, we asked for users' opinions about why the car crash fatality rate in Colorado has risen so sharply in 2016. From the hundreds of people who interacted with our previous post, we found that users attributed the following reasons to the rise in car accident-related deaths in the state (figures rounded to the nearest whole percent):

Why Are Colorado Traffic Fatalities On The Rise?

Colorado has seen the number of deaths in vehicle accidents last year rise to levels not seen since 2008. Motorcyclists were disproportionately affected, and last year saw a record number of motorcyclist deaths in the state. Officials are trying to implement safety measures to curb accidents, and look to increase education within the public. Most troubling of all? 2016 is on pace to be even deadlier than 2015.

Artificial Unintelligence or Driver Error? Fatal Accidents and Self-driving Cars.

Excitement around self-driving cars has been building as the idea finally became a reality from innovators like Google and Tesla. But when the first reported fatal automated car crash occurred earlier this year, it made many wonder if driverless vehicles and the technology behind them should be reconsidered for safety reasons.

4th of July: The Deadliest Holiday Of The Year

Every year, the National Safety Council (NSC) makes estimates for how deadly holidays and holiday weekends will be. This year, the data paints a grim picture for the 4th of July weekend; the NSC is estimating that 466 people will be killed and more than 53,000 will be injured over the course of the three-day weekend. This is a national estimate that includes Colorado.

Is Legalized Marijuana Causing More Fatal Accidents?

Many people across the United States have applauded Colorado's progressive marijuana laws, and the passage of Amendment 64 has had many benefits -- including increased tax revenues, decreased crime and a thriving economy in the state. However, a new study shows that the legalization of recreational marijuana may also have an alarming effect on public safety.

Impaired driving: still a danger for teens, and for more than alcohol

At some point in their life, almost every teen in America has heard about the dangers of driving drunk. From repeated public service announcements to school demonstrations, every teen is at least aware that driving drunk is risky.

Night driving tips for teens

It isn't surprising that most accidents happen at night. What may be surprising is just how dangerous it can be for inexperienced drivers. According to data compiled by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, nearly 60 percent of all fatalities in teen car crashes occur between 6:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m., despite significantly fewer drivers being out on the road. While everyone has a greater risk of crashing at night, the risk is higher for teenagers.
