Life can change in an instant. When going through the daily routine of life, not paying attention and thinking nothing significant is about to happen, it does. Millions of people hit the roadways around 5:00pm every evening in a daze from the workday and just trying to get home for some rest and time with family and friends. Sometimes, in those most routine moments, life changes. That was the case for three individuals involved in a car accident that took the life of a Colorado man recently.
A new bill is once again under consideration to eliminate the use of red light cameras across Colorado. Lawmakers hope this bill will finally be the one to succeed in the elimination of cameras that they claim don't actually reduce car accidents, but instead change the type of accidents that commonly occur and are simply money-making mechanisms. Cities across Colorado, including Denver, have conflicting views about the use of these controversial devices.
It was a record the city didn't want to set, but unfortunately, it did. Last year became the deadliest year on record for deaths caused by car accidents in Colorado Springs. An alarming 48 people lost their lives in traffic-related accidents on Colorado Springs' roadways in 2018.
When investigating most accidents, one would think it is great to have an unbiased eyewitness who can clarify exactly what happened. The problem is that if two people witness the same accident, each will usually have his or her own version of what took place, and the facts may get skewed. This is the case with a fatal motorcycle accident that occurred in Denver recently.
