Driving a vehicle can be dangerous anywhere you are. Paying attention to the road and other drivers are two of the most important things you can do to ensure you get home safely. Navigating obstacles on the road, distracted drivers, and overall traffic is something we all have to deal with daily on the roads in Colorado.


Throw in some winter weather and icy roads and now there is even more caution when driving. Did you know that there are times of the day when the roads in Colorado are more dangerous than others? Most would think Friday and Saturday nights after the bars close would be the most dangerous time to be on the road and that is overall true nationwide for these times. However, that is not the most dangerous time in Colorado.
