CDOT works to curb driving impaired by pot

The Colorado Department of Transportation’s new drugged driving awareness campaign — “Dangerous Combinations” — sends a simple and honest message: driving high is dangerous and illegal, according to a news release.

The new creative campaign launched this week and features videos and striking visuals to raise awareness that driving high can lead to serious consequences. CDOT is also working with dispensaries statewide to place educational posters and rolling papers to reach users right where they purchase marijuana.

In a self-reported survey conducted last year by CDOT, 55 percent of marijuana users drove high an average of seven days per month. And according to the Colorado State Patrol, so far this year, nearly one out of every five DUIs in Colorado involves marijuana.

CDOT will continue to address all forms of impaired driving, including alcohol, drugs and prescription medication, to decrease crashes and fatalities on Colorado roads.

CDOT urges marijuana users to arrange safe transportation any time they choose to consume.

Traffic impacts can be expected northbound and southbound on Colorado Highway 9 through Friday, during daylight hours, according to a news release.

A temporary lane will be in place detouring traffic around construction from mile marker 127 to 128. Speeds will be reduced to 25 miles per hour through the temporary lane.

The temporary detour lane is necessary while crews install a wildlife underpass structure, and will remain in place until underpass construction is complete.

Motorists can expect one lane of alternating traffic and delays as long as 45 minutes through the construction zone.

Flaggers will be in place at each access road and will work to accommodate both highway and residential traffic.

Wide loads are restricted to 12 feet.

Motorists, cyclists and bikers should exercise extreme caution and follow reduced posted speed limits and flaggers’ instructions. Adhere to the 35 or 45 miles per hour speed limits.
