In the past few weeks Colorado has seen a devastating amount of rain. Due
to the extensive flooding caused by recent storms, thousands of individuals
have been displaced and hundreds of homes and other structures have been
lost. Major roads and thoroughfares have also suffered severe damage.
Roads that have not been left underwater and still remain passable must
be negotiated with caution due to sinkholes and other damage caused by
rushing flood waters.
While the residents of Colorado have sustained the worst of the damage,
weather conditions and road closures have also had a definite impact on
the trucking industry. With I-25, I-70, U.S. Route 85 and other major
routes experiencing damage and/or becoming increasingly congested, Wyoming
and other cross-country truckers have seen major delays and have been
forced to find alternate routes to get their loads to their intended destinations.
With more traffic being loaded onto fewer roads, there is no question that
the chance for accidents will significantly increase. Frustration, driver
distraction, confusion, mechanical breakdown, and various other circumstances
are all capable of causing serious accidents and injuries.
