Motorist Safety Program Expands to North I-25

March 9, 2016 - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - WELD/LARIMER COUNTIES – The Colorado Department of Transportation’s Motorist Safety Program, formerly known as the Courtesy Patrol, is now patrolling Interstate 25 in northern Colorado.

Operating between State Highway 66 near Longmont and State Highway 14 in the Fort Collins area, the Motorist Safety Program provides drivers of passenger vehicles with free roadside assistance for services such as flat tires, fuel or water transfer, jump starts, short-distance towing, accident scene protection and minor mechanical assistance.  

Motorist Safety personnel patrol I-25 from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m., and 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.  Crews are dispatched from CDOT’s Traffic Operations Center in Golden and also respond to requests from the Colorado State Patrol and local law enforcement.   

The program has operated in the Denver area and along I-70, west of Denver, for several years.  Due to its effectiveness at enhancing driver safety and reducing congestion and delay times along numerous corridors, CDOT recently expanded it to include both northern Colorado and the Colorado Springs area.
