More commercial truckers are navigating Independence Pass... even though they’re not supposed to. That’s according to the Colorado State Patrol. This summer, officers are doing more to bring those numbers down. And the effort comes as a worldwide GPS company is also trying to get the attention of more drivers.
When traveling east of Aspen on Highway 82, there are several signs warning drivers, saying:
“No trucks over thirty five feet in length can drive up and over Independence Pass.”
