Colorado Considers Annual Fee for Larger Vehicle Registrations to Fund Bike and Pedestrian Infrastructure – Denver 7

DENVER — Colorado lawmakers are considering a bill that would add an additional fee to annual registrations of larger vehicles, such as SUVs and trucks, to fund local safety infrastructure projects for cyclists and pedestrians.

The bill, called the Vulnerable Road User Protection Enterprise, is under consideration by the Senate Finance Committee.

The fees would be tied to the size and weight of a vehicle. During a committee hearing Tuesday, bill cosponsors said owners of smaller cars and sedans would likely see no added fees, whereas owners of larger SUVs and trucks could see an extra $5 to $10 per year.
