Move Your Crash Colorado
Every year in Colorado there are thousands of secondary accidents and hundreds of injuries that could have been prevented by simply moving crashes out of traffic. Colorado law (Colorado Revised Statute # 42-4-1602) requires that vehicles involved in a crash on a divided highway are moved to a safe location as long as there are no injuries and no drugs or alcohol are involved. Those involved in the crash are still required to contact the police. For every ten minutes a road is blocked, the resulting traffic delay can last up to sixty minutes. Please do your part to avoid accidents from occurring in the first place. Slow down, avoid distractions, and follow at a safe distance.
