Safety Reminder: CDOT would like to remind C-470 motorists of Colorado’s Move-It Law, a joint effort between CDOT and law enforcement agencies to encourage motorists to follow a state law requiring drivers involved in minor accidents on Interstates to move their vehicle immediately out of traffic to a safe location.  The insurance industry also encourages compliance with the Move It law, reassuring drivers there will still be a full investigation of the crash to determine fault.

“Many people are apprehensive about moving their vehicle after an accident, worried they’re jeopardizing their insurance coverage,” says Carole Walker, executive director of the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association.  “However, when it comes to safety, the industry fully supports taking actions that reduces potential hazards to drivers, first and foremost.”

Construction activities are weather dependent and schedule is subject to change.
