The CDOT State Farm® Safety Patrol is an integral part of the state's incident management program. It provides limited roadside assistance at no charge to drivers in need, including:

  • providing fuel;
  • changing flat tires;
  • jump-starting vehicles;
  • providing lockout assistance;
  • moving disabled vehicles to the shoulder;
  • assisting stranded motorists;
  • providing back up to the Colorado State Patrol at incident scenes; and
  • clearing debris from the highway to improve traffic flow and prevent future incidents.

Each year, the Safety Patrol assists over 30,000 motorists.

CDOT is proud to offer this service, sponsored by State Farm, to all motorists. Learn more about the program, and share your feedback and experiences via our webform, or by using the hashtag #AssistPatrol on social media.
