Traffic crashes occur every year in the City and County of Denver, involving vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, motorized scooters and pedestrians. Several have resulted in serious injuries and fatalities and, unfortunately, crashes may continue to result in the same outcomes due to risky behaviors such as speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving, not wearing a helmet or not following crosswalk signals.

The Traffic Investigations Unit investigates traffic crashes to include hit and run incidents, fatal and serious bodily injuries, incidents involving pedestrians and bicycles and impaired driving.

As a lead partner agency,  DPD is committed to supporting  Vision Zero's, mission to eliminate traffic-related deaths through enhanced photo enforcement and citations, streamlined data collection efforts, and public awareness campaigns.

As part of Vision Zero's Action Plan, DPD and Denver Public Works conduct "Rapid Response Meetings' after pedestrian, motorcyclist or bicylist fatalities to identify risk factors that can be addressed citywide (left photo).
