DUI arrest: Valentine’s Day gift from Colorado law enforcers?

Stepping stones.

That one-after-the-other imagery might reasonably crop up for Colorado motorists who seemingly conclude one anti-DUI campaign and immediately confront another multiple times each calendar year.

In fact, “seemingly” is almost certainly a misplaced descriptor in any reference to the state’s successive enforcement rollouts that annually feature on Colorado roadways.

Those are many and ever-recurring. We stress in a recent Shazam Kianpour & Associates blog post “state regulators’ unstinting focus on Colorado DUI enforcement,” which is routinely promoted through crackdowns aimed at securing drunk driving convictions.

As noted in that entry, January’s just-concluded Winter Blitz is early evidence of statewide initiatives that begin early each year and tick off with regularity across the months.

And now promptly on to the next stone: The timing of this blog post is arguably spot on, given that Colorado’s second major anti-DUI blitz coincidentally begins today. Although it lacks a catchy title, the 2021 Presidents Day DUI enforcement period (which centrally includes Valentine’s Day) promises to ultimately yield some notable arrest-linked headlines following its termination on February 22.

Here’s evidence of that: Last year’s effort yielded nearly 600 arrests of state motorists who were allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.

Law enforcers deal with offenders in a harsh and unforgiving manner. Penalties can range widely from jail time, punitive monetary sanctions and license suspension to DUI probation, spiked insurance rates, imposed community service and additional exactions.

Questions or concerns regarding any aspect of a DUI arrest can be directed to a proven defense legal team.
