Traffic Safety

The Colorado State Patrol evaluates the safety of Colorado roads by monitoring the fatality rate  in the State of Colorado.  As indicated by the most recent data available (CY 2012), while the State of Colorado saw a 0.0 percent reduction in its fatality rate over a three-year period, there has been an 8.3 percent increase in the overall fatality rate on roadways covered by CSP troopers.          


Multiple factors affect the safety of Colorado’s roads including: the population, the number of licensed drivers, the number
of registered vehicles and the traffic volume (vehicles miles traveled).
