The Heat is On

Colorado DUI officers increase patrols and introduce sobriety checkpoints

By John Buckley - May 26, 2017

As we begin the Memorial Day weekend, DUI officers in Denver and throughout Colorado begin their annual "The Heat is On" campaign.  This means that additional officers will be on the road and setting up sobriety checkpoints this weekend - looking for drunk drivers.  

Specifically, Lakewood Police have announced that they will be setting up a checkpoint near Wadsworth and Alameda on Saturday evening.  http://kdvr.com/2017/05/25/lakewood-police-warn-of-upcoming-dui-checkpoint/

You have rights when you are coming up to a sobriety checkpoint. See the link here for more information.  http://duiattorneydenver.co/blog/8033/DUI-Checkpoint-Information-from-Your-Denver-Criminal-Defense-Attorney-

Please celebrate this holiday weekend responsibly.  If you plan to drink to excess, please have a plan to get home safely.
