In 2014, the Medina Alert-Hit and Run law was signed by the Governor Hickenlooper. The Act was held in partnership between Taxis on patrol, law enforcement organizations, and media to efficiently utilize electronic media to deliver urgent bulletin in severe hit and run circumstances. The name of the act was given on the name of Jose Medina who was killed in January 2011 by a driver in hit and run case. This is a tremendous law through which a suspect can be easily caught with the help of cooperation between citizens, media, and police.
On considering this law, a highly effective mobile app was introduced which made execution of the act extremely easy.
