Colorado Task Force on Drunk & Impaired Driving
The Colorado Task Force on Drunk & Impaired Driving (CTFDID) was established by the Colorado General Assembly in 2006 in an effort to generate more collaboration and consensus for effective solutions to the impaired driving problem in Colorado. The official mission of the CTFDID is “to investigate methods of reducing incidents of drunk and impaired driving and develop recommendations for the State of Colorado regarding the enhancement of government services, education, and intervention to prevent drunk and impaired driving.”
Transit and Rail Advisory Committee (TRAC)
The Interim Transit and Rail advisory committee has been established to advise on the initial focus of the transit and rail division and to recommend a long-term advisory structure, including the advisory structure’s purpose and role.
State Traffic Records Advisory Committee (STRAC)
The Colorado Statewide Traffic Records Advisory Committee (STRAC) is an advisory group representing the data records interests of motor vehicle traffic and safety agencies and organizations. Within statutory constraints, the Committee recommends policies regarding the retention and dissemination of traffic records information. Meeting minutes and agendas will be posted as they become available.
