8 Tips for Dealing with Terrible Colorado Drivers

July 12, 2019
How To Handle Terrible Colorado Drivers! Back in 1998 the Colorado State Patrol began a campaign to target aggressive drivers. Rather than calling 911, drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians can dial *CSP to report an aggressive driver. Remember to provide the dispatcher the exact location (road and direction), a description of the vehicle, and the manner in which the vehicle is being driven.

June 24, 2019
Should I Trust The Insurance Adjuster? When you purchase an insurance policy, you do so thinking your insurance company will protect you. You expect them to take care of you if you’re in an accident and help you cover expenses like medical bills and repairs. Insurance adjusters are supposed to help, right? Unfortunately, this is a common misconception. Insurance companies do not exist to protect your best interests; they exist to make profits by protecting theirs. They’re happy to take your money when you pay your premium, but when the time comes to reimburse you for expenses after an accident, it becomes all too clear that they aren’t your friend. You can’t always count on insurance… Read Full Post
