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. Do not attempt to follow or pursue the vehicle. It is not your job, it’s not safe and it is rarely going to turn out well. If you’ve ever complained that Colorado drivers are terrible, there are statistics to support your claim. In a study by Allstate, Denver drivers fared worse than the national… Read Full Post

Insurance Adjusters are Not Your Friends

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

What Age Group has the Safest Drivers?

June 11, 2019
If the thought of being a passenger in a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old makes you a bit nervous, you are not alone, and you are justified in your concern. Similarly, you may have found yourself as a passenger in an elderly person’s vehicle and felt just as anxious. Experience, cognition, reaction time, and distracted driving all factor in to how age affects driver safety. As such, middle-aged adult drivers are positioned as the safest drivers statistically. Unfortunately, even if you never set foot in a teen or elderly driver’s vehicle and are a safe driver in the safest driver demographic, you still must share the road with younger and older drivers. If you’ve been injured in a car… Read Full Post

Texting While Driving Just As Dangerous As Drunk Driving

May 29, 2019
According to distraction.gov, the federal government’s website for distracted driving, drivers who text or use hand-held devices are four times more likely to be involved in an accident.
