Winter Mountain Driving and Colorado’s Traction Law

Even in the best conditions, winter driving takes preparation, patience, and flexibility. And that goes double for driving in Colorado’s mountains, where road and weather conditions can change rapidly and present a series of formidable challenges for even the most seasoned driver, from fog and windy whiteouts to ice storms, slush, and passes closed by avalanches.
