You're more like to notice a car crossing a Denver street than a pedestrian or bicyclist. Bike riders and walkers may be harder to see because they take up less space than cars and trucks, but that doesn't excuse motorists who cause pedestrian accidents from negligence.
Legal access is available for foot traffic and small vehicles on many Jefferson County roads. Street courtesy involves more than politeness. Laws mandate that motorists stay alert and shift driving behaviors with constant changes in all traffic - not just maneuvers by drivers with similar vehicles.
