Now that June has arrived, most of Colorado's busy summer highways are now open. Likewise, Colorado's many mountain passes are opening up, and all of this means more drivers, more traffic, and more State Troopers.

The State Patrol recently warned motorists that as of Memorial Day Weekend, they would step up patrols in Colorado watching for the 10 most common violations on our state's busiest highways. Keep going to find out what those common violations are so that you don't end up with an expensive ticket this summer.

Colorado's Busiest Summer Highways

Recently published in the Denver Gazette, the State Patrol has tried to save you a ticket by announcing where they will be increasing patrols. Since we have all been given notice, do not expect to be let off with a warning if you are pulled over for one of the 10 most common violations in Colorado.

Expect to see more troopers on Highways 34, 40, 50, 160, 287, I-70, and I-25.

Don't Forget Your Seat Belt

In 2023, the State Patrol reported that accidents that involved a fatality saw 81% of people who wore a seatbelt survive. Only 19% of those who did not wear a seatbelt survived. It's a no-brainer. Buckle-up.
