Winter Blitz DUI Enforcement Underway

 The Winter Blitz Heat is On DUI enforcement campaign is underway in Colorado. Colorado State Patrol will be partnering with local law enforcement to remove as many intoxicated drivers from the roads as possible. The ten-day DUI enforcement period will run through January 29th. More than 10,000 intoxicated drivers were arrested last year during Heat is On enforcement campaigns. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration numbers show that on average, one person in the United States lost their life every 50 minutes in alcohol-related crashes in 2016. Of the more than 10,000 fatalities to take place that year, more than 1,000 were children under the age of 14. According to the Colorado State Patrol, impaired drivers were involved in more than one-third of all traffic fatalities which occurred in Colorado in 2017.
