91 law enforcement agencies are participating in the Winter Blitz enforcement period lasting through February 3rd.
522 impaired drivers have been arrested during this DUI enforcement period according to a report from the Colorado Department of Transportation which is a decrease from the 612 arrests during the same period last year.
CDOT recommends if you plan to drink, plan a sober ride. If you’re the designated driver, don’t drink and if you’re hosting a party where you serve alcohol and that person gets in a crash, you could be held liable.
Driving under the influence can result in license suspension, more than $13,000 dollars in fines, and can land you a year in jail.
