Colorado Memorial Day DUI arrests down 25%


Every summer, the Colorado State Patrol, Denver Police, and other law enforcement agencies throughout Colorado launch there "Heat is On" campaign to combat DUI in our state.  Denver DUI attorneys are often flooded with calls from people who have been charged over holiday weekends.

Interestingly, statistics released by the Colorado State Patrol and the Colorado Department of Transportation show a significant decrease in drunk driving arrests last week.  Over 80 law enforcement agencies participated in sobriety checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols.  In this same period last year, there were 408 people arrested for DUI.  This past holiday weekend only had 298.  

Congratulations Colorado!  Keep driving responsibly!
