    CDOT in place to make roads as safe as possible during storm

    DENVER —  A blizzard could bear down on Colorado starting tonight and ending tomorrow. Snow totals could be up to eight inches in metro Denver, higher in the high country–all of it could make travel tricky. The day started with sunshine and dry roads across the metro–except in the high country–where snow and cold antagonized drivers. “What we are also looking at are higher winds. When you combine high winds with more snow it has a potential for blizzard conditions,” […]

    DENVER — A battling is brewing between some downtown dwellers and the Regional Transportation District or RTD. Residents of the IsBell Lofts at 1800 Lawrence woke up Monday to the clamor of construction. It was the first sign of what would be coming right outside their door–and they are not happy about it.

    Woman in minor fender bender has advice on how to avoid trouble she faces

    DENVER — It has probably happened to many of us. We get into a minor fender bender and we exchange insurance and driver information with the other person—without immediately calling police.

Sherry Sun had stopped at the traffic light 80th Ave. and Raleigh St. “I just saw this car behind […]

    Video: Woman who appears to be visually impaired gets behind wheel of car

    DENVER — It is a sight that caught a FOX31 Denver news viewer by surprise. He captured it on video, then, emailed it to our Problem Solvers, asking should a blind lady be driving? It made us wonder: what are the guidelines for when you can or can’t drive anymore? To get a driver’s license in Colorado, you have to have at least 20-40 vision–which means the driver sees at 20 feet what a person with normal vision sees at […]
