Being arrested for a DUI in Colorado at anytime of the year can have a dramatic impact on anyone's life. Loss of the ability to drive, potential jail time, and the heavy cost of alcohol classes and treatment are just a few of the potential negative consequences of getting arrested for a DUI in Denver, Arapahoe, Boulder or Adams County. Being arrested for a DUI over the holiday season only adds more difficulty into an already stressful situation.
In Colorado, over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2012, 563 people were arrested for impaired driving. This year as part of their The Heat is On campaign, the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Colorado State Patrol, and other law enforcement agencies will be cracking down on impaired driving between Tuesday, November 26, 2013 and Monday, December 2, 2013. As one of the busiest travel times of the year, law enforcement takes extra precautions to make the roadways as safe as possible.
During this Thanksgiving holiday we encourage everyone to enjoy the season with friends and loved ones in a responsible manner. As always, the easiest way to avoid a DUI in Colorado is to not drive while you are impaired. If there is any doubt, call for a cab at 303-333-3333.
