Event planned to raise awareness of roadside safety

Emergency responders, law enforcement agencies, tow companies and others are expected to join in an annual event promoting awareness of roadside safety.

The Slow Down Move Over Colorado Saturday Night Awareness Cruise is scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 15.

Vehicles will be staged at Grand Mesa Middle School starting at 5:30 and proceed down 31 1/2 Road, Patterson Road,
24 1/2 Road, First Street and the Interstate Highway 70 Business Loop. 

Vehicles will gather at the Teller Arms Shopping Center.
A truck lighting display is planned in remembrance of those killed or injured on the road.

Colorado law requires drivers to move one lane away from emergency, maintenance or tow vehicles. If they’re unable to move over, drivers must reduce their speed to 20 miles per hour below the posted speed limit.
