A new year brings new resolutions, new beginnings and hope for a great year but there’s one resolution that everyone can make right now – Drink & Don’t Drive. To help keep Coloradans safe from the dangers of impaired drivers, the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Colorado State Patrol are once again teaming with nearly 100 law enforcement agencies throughout Colorado in the final DUI enforcement period of 2014 and first of 2015, as part of CDOT’s ongoing The Heat Is On impaired driving prevention campaign.
The New Year’s crackdown includes more DUI checkpoints and law enforcement on the streets looking for impaired drivers began yesterday and continues through Monday. During last year’s New Year’s enforcement, CSP troopers and other law enforcement agencies arrested more than 500 impaired drivers throughout the state. Drivers who made the wrong decision and drove impaired, putting their lives and the lives of others at risk.
