Early snows cause numerous accidents in Colorado

Snow fell in the middle of October in Colorado, and it led to a string of car accidents. One multi-vehicle wreck occurred close to Golden.

Reports indicate that slick roads posed a major threat, with vehicles sliding out of control and sometimes leaving the roadway entirely. In one accident, a tractor-trailer slid off and people got hurt in the ensuing crash. When a vehicle that heavy loses control, it is very dangerous for everyone else on the road.

How common is it for drivers to illegally pass school buses?

With school starting up, school buses are once again a very common sight out on Colorado’s roads. There are various special rules related to driving near school buses. This includes rules regarding not passing school buses that have their red lights flashing and their stop arms out. It is critical for motorists to follow these rules. Unfortunately, recently released survey results indicate that it might be pretty common for U.S. drivers to fall short in this respect.

The survey was a one-day survey conducted during last school year. In the survey, over 100,000 school bus drivers reported on whether they had been illegally passed during the day. These drivers were from 38 states and Washington D.C.
