Dangerous Drivers Cause Serious Accidents in Colorado

Dangerous roads can contribute to auto accidents. Colorado holds the dubious distinction of being home to one of the top ten most dangerous roads in America. The roadway, Colorado 550, aka Million Dollar Highway, suffers from many problems that give rise to numerous accidents each year. Its lack of guardrails and shoulders along with the flocks of wildlife that move across it make it extremely treacherous. In winter the road is subject to avalanches and its high elevation contributes to icy conditions. Colorado Route 550 climbs through three San Juan mountain passes over 24 difficult miles between Ouray and Silverton.

Some things you can do to avoid accidents on dangerous roadways include:

Persons involved in an auto accident on a dangerous road should speak to a car crash attorney about the possibility of seeking compensation for injuries.
