Extrapolated data on virtually any subject matter can of course be relevant even without regard to markers of comparison.

It is certainly the case, though, that statistical information gathered and released to the public is often far more germane when it is examined outside of a vacuum. That is unquestionably true when figures and numbers are released that predominantly spotlight a specific locale.

Put another way: Highlighted data underscoring a select reality in a given area can seem instantly more meaningful when examined alongside information from surrounding regions that addresses the same subject matter.

Take reported drunk driving levels, for example. Empirical findings stress both a short-term and longer-term spike in DUI arrests across Colorado. That alone is revealing, of course, but the study observation is quickly rendered even more relevant with the addition of this single bullet point: Colorado reportedly resides among the top quarter of all states for drunk driving arrests.

To be specific, culled DUI data from a broad spectrum of notable sources (ranging from the U.S. Department of Transportation to the national Centers for Disease Control) indicate that Colorado ranks 13th nationally in drunk driving arrests and convictions.

Some readers of our Denver criminal defense blogs at Shazam Kianpour & Associates might reasonably want to know what state sits atop the DUI list. Namely, that is South Dakota.

The bottom line concerning DUI stops — and, often, arrests coupled with criminal convictions for motorists — is that such an experience routinely occurs for legions of individuals in the United States.

When it does, an affected driver has an obvious and immediate need to secure knowledgeable and aggressive legal help. In Colorado, a proven Denver defense team can provide that assistance.
