Traffic safety tips from the Fraser-Winter Park Police Department

With spring and summer quickly approaching, the Fraser-Winter Park Police Department requests your assistance with the following traffic safety items:

-It is illegal in Colorado to skate/long board on any roadway. This puts the boarder and the traveling public in an extremely dangerous, if not fatal situation. Officers will be contacting and educating first-time offenders and will be issuing citations to repeat offenders.

-It is illegal to text while driving a motor vehicle. A simple text has negatively changed many people's lives across our state. We ask for your due diligence to make sure it doesn't happen in our community.

-Seat belts save lives. As a constant reminder, please make sure that you and all your passengers are properly restrained. For further information about Colorado's child passenger safety law, please visit

-Please don't drink and drive. Plan ahead, designate a sober driver, and utilize public transportation.
