Speeding a Problem on Aurora Highways

The Denver Post has posted an article detailing the problem of speeding on Aurora highways. Aurora police have been aware of the issue for some time and have recently received a grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation to address the problem.  A series of events on a stretch of I-225 on Saturday illustrates the problem they face.

An officer pulled over a driver who was traveling 90 mph, 35 over the speed limit. When the officer turned to walk back to his car, the speeding driver took off.  Another officer gave chase but did not apprehend the speeder.  Not long after this event, a fatal car accident took place on the same stretch of highway. Both drivers involved in the accident were speeding. Lt. Charles DeShazer of the Aurora Police was quoted to have said, “I don’t know what it is about that part of the road that it just becomes the Autobahn.”

  1. I’ve driven I-225 too many times to count and it does seem that drivers are always pushing the speed limit. It’s important for us to obey these limits. No one wants to be the cause of a fatal car accident.
