DENVER — As you hit Colorado’s highways this weekend, remember to drive safely.

Colorado State Patrol troopers will be out in force all weekend beginning Friday night enforcing their ‘Zero Fatalities, Zero Tolerance’ campaign.

Almost 500 people died on Colorado highways in 2013. This year’s ‘Zero, Zero’ campaign aims to bring that number down.

Troopers will be out enforcing traffic laws in big numbers all weekend through midnight Sunday.

The State Patrol wants people to focus on driving safely … no talking on the cell phone or texting, no putting on makeup. Trooper want to encourage people to just deal with driving their vehicle without any distractions.

The idea with the stepped-up enforcement this weekend to save lives on our highways.
