CDOT message signs in the holiday spirit

Posted: Updated:

While CDOT's latest sign causes one to start humming "Jingle Bells," they're hoping that you'll remember to buckle up and not become another statistic.

As we approach the end of the year, CDOT is trying in a holiday spirit kind of way, to stop drivers from approaching the end of their lives. 604 people have died so far this year on Colorado's roads. Well over 200 of those were impaired at the time. 

With the holiday shopping frenzy well underway, there's more traffic in the obvious places, like shopping malls and stores. Streets downtown are crowded and that goes for the most of the main roadways throughout Colorado Springs right now.

Traffic along the I-25 corridor has been at a snails pace lately, with delays in both directions approaching the Castle Rock outlet stores.

CDOT is prepared for the cold weather and snow expected in the next few days, but the bigger questions is, are you? Thousands of people are taking to the roads to travel for Christmas. The snow may be minimal along the Front Range, but it's expected to be heavier in the high country. Making sure that your vehicle is properly winterized is important before you and that includes having the proper winter tires.

In addition to that, "The Heat is On" campaign is underway statewide. More on that story can be found at:  http://bit.ly/2oWKOJP
