Emptier roads can still be dangerous if you don't drive safely

March 20, 2020 - Statewide Traffic Safety

The Colorado Department of Transportation reminds drivers that less traffic on the roads does not mean less danger--especially when some choose to abandon safe driving practices. Several multi-car pileups, in addition to significant additional crashes, caused road closures and injuries throughout Colorado. At a time when medical facilities are already stretched, drivers can #DoYourPartCO and move responsibly. Your trip - and the health and safety of your community - are counting on it.



CDOT has approximately 3,000 employees located throughout Colorado, and manages more than 23,000 lane miles of highway and 3,429 bridges. CDOT also manages grant partnerships with a range of other agencies, including metropolitan planning organizations, local governments and airports. It also administers Bustang, the state-owned and operated interregional express service. Governor Polis has charged CDOT to further build on the state’s intermodal mobility options.
