Safe roads are important to everyone so we can all enjoy the great things Colorado has to offer. Colorado has laws to keep the roads safe, yet many of those laws aren't in line with national recommendations for safety.

The 2018 Problem Identification Report includes information about all the crashes on Colorado roadways, including bicycles, pedestrians, impaired driving, seat belts, speed-related crashes and more. This report, created in partnership between us and the Colorado Department of Transportation, provides statewide and county-level data on motor vehicle crashes and fatalities, and suggests effective intervention strategies. The new 2018 Problem Identification Dashboard provides motor vehicle crash data by the county and Regional Emergency Trauma Advisory Council region (RETAC) where crashes occur in the state of Colorado (link below).
