The Traffic Section of the Larimer County Engineering Department keeps records of traffic accidents reported in unincorporated Larimer County. Copies of accident reports are received from the Colorado State Highway Patrol and entered into a database. The database can be searched for accidents in a given area, type of accident as well as other information contained in the accident report.
This information is used to help identify locations within Larimer County where there are frequent accidents or unusually high severity of accidents. This accident data is often reviewed as part of traffic studies performed by the Traffic Section. The accident data are also shared with local law enforcement agencies.
Accident data are kept for the last five full years and archives are maintained for accidents back to 1984.
