Highway Safety Office


The Highway Safety Office (HSO), within the Office of Transportation Safety (OTS) at CDOT, is responsible for developing and administering behavioral programs that improve the traffic safety environment in Colorado by reducing the number and severity of traffic crashes.

Mission: Reduce the incidence and severity of motor vehicle crashes and the associated human and economic loss.

HSO programs target specific high-risk driving behaviors - such as impaired driving, speeding, distracted driving - and also focuses on populations at high risk for crash involvement, such as:

  • younger and older drivers
  • motorcyclists
  • pedestrians
  • passenger vehicle occupants who do not use proper restraint devices
