With snowstorms making driving conditions slick and dangerous, state officials are pleading for drivers to slow down — especially around vehicles stalled on the side of the road and emergency service vehicles.

Since Thursday, four Colorado State Patrol vehicles have been hit on the job. The fourth happened Sunday in Weld County when a trooper’s vehicle was hit while the officer was investigating a crash on Interstate 25.

The first three happened in La Plata County, Lakewood, and Garfield County.

No serious injuries were reported.

CSP noted the incidents in a Sunday afternoon Facebook post to encourage motorists to drive more safely.

“We have been lucky these four times they were not worse. There is no argument that can justify a failure to #MoveOver and #SlowDown,” the post read. “We want to go home to our families.”
