Traction Law And Express Toll

Traction Law And Express Toll

Heading up to the mountains?  Two things to keep in mind.  First, Colorado passed the Traction Law.  This law requires that vehicles must have chains, snow tires, mud/snow designated tires or at least 1/8" tread.   If stopped without qualifying, you may get a $130 fine.  If you happen to block the road or traffic, you may get a $650 fine.  I guess having good tires is pretty darn important.  

For those of you who travel up to the high country often, you may want to consider getting an ExpressToll account.  The Eastbound 13 mile stretch from Empire to Idaho Springs is now an Express lane during peak hours saving up to 30 minutes of drive time.  Pricing for use of this lane can change depending vehicles traveling in the corridor.  To get your account visit or call  303-537-3470.
