More people are dying on Denver’s roads as cops write far fewer traffic tickets


The show of force was impressive as 11 Denver police officers fanned out on Interstates 25 and 70 on a recent Friday. In short order, they handed tickets to 101 drivers and gave warnings to 21 more, the department said. The average clocked speed exceeded 80 mph, and the fastest was recorded at 110 mph. Police intend for recurring highway “saturation patrols” like the Feb. 1 operation to send an unmistakable message to speed demons caught in the act.
