The law enacts posted speed limits to protect everyone on and around the road. Going drastically over the speed limit can significantly increase the chances of a car accident. One reason why Colorado drivers may be traveling so quickly is due to being engaged in illegal street racing. The dangers of being involved in street racing were recently demonstrated after seven people were sent to the hospital following a crash.
Police are hoping that surveillance video footage will help them find a hit-and-run driver from a recent evening accident. The car accident occurred about a block away from a Colorado City Councilman's office. He is hoping that someone with information will come forward to police to try and identify the driver.
Police enforce laws on speed in an attempt to ensure the safety of everyone on the road. Colorado drivers who are inclined to go over the speed limit are at a much higher risk of being involved in a car accident. Going over the speed limit can result in an accident that causes injuries or even death.
Many seemingly harmless roads can become dangerous when a driver exceeds the speed limit. Colorado police enforce the posted speed limit in an effort to prevent a needless car accident. When drivers travel too quickly, they can easily lose control and cause significant harm to themselves and others around them.
After an accident in Colorado, a driver should never immediately leave the scene. The driver must wait for law enforcement to arrive and also attempt to provide reasonable aid if there are any victims who were injured in the car accident. Fleeing an accident can have serious repercussions in and of itself.
Colorado citizens are unfortunately reminded time and again that when drivers fail to follow the rules of the road, unintended consequences often occur. Troopers from the Colorado State Patrol reported two different car crashes which both occurred on March 23, sending four people to two hospitals. One car accident victim was airlifted to St. Anthony Hospital & Medical Center in Denver, while the other three injured were taken to Mercy Regional Medical Center.
