Increase in Colorado car accidents linked to marijuana

Everyone knows that drinking and driving is not only illegal but also extremely dangerous. It has a direct correlation with the number of car accidents that occur, and often these accidents are fatal. But what about other mind-altering substances, such as marijuana? Recent studies have shown that there is a link between the states, including Colorado, that have legalized the recreational use of marijuana and the number of car crashes that have occurred in them.

Colorado Springs reaches 40 fatal car accidents

Colorado Springs is getting closer and closer to setting a record it doesn't want to achieve.

Car accidents in Colorado Springs bring back red light cameras

Life is busy: everyone gets in a rush. Often it seems like red lights have the absolute worst timing possible--turning and staying red when one is in the biggest of hurries.

The high number of accidents at red lights in Colorado Springs is prompting the police chief there to take action.

Tragically, a woman lost her life after she was struck by a car on the morning of Aug. 5. Police in Colorado Springs are not expected to press charges against the driver involved.
