Rolling Coal Law

The practice of “Rolling Coal” has been an ongoing issue for cyclists and pedestrians and creates not only an unhealthy environment for the cyclist or pedestrian, but creates a dangerous situation as the thick black smoke impedes the sight of the cyclist or pedestrian. With the help of testimony from members of Bike Jeffco, in 2017 a bill was passed to make coal rolling a Class A Violation. Although this practice is illegal, it still occurs occasionally. If you witness this occurring, we urge you to immediately report it by calling the Colorado State Patrol at *277.
