Turn Down the Heat

As hot weather pummels Colorado, the Colorado State Patrol and statewide law enforcement agencies continue to add their own heat. As we discussed in the last blog posting, the summer-long 100 Days of Heat is an intensive crackdown on drunk driving throughout the state. During last summer's 100 Days of Heat, 3,531 individuals were arrested for driving under the influence (DUI).

This year's 100 Days of Heat continues through Labor Day. Until then, law enforcement will use saturation patrols, drunk driving checkpoints and other extreme measures to find and arrest alleged drunk drivers.

DUI Checkpoint Colorado

DUI Checkpoint Colorado is one of the particularly visible programs involved in 100 Days of Heat. You may have seen sobriety checkpoints throughout Colorado this summer, including DUI checkpoints in Boulder, Denver and Colorado Springs.

Over the Fourth of July alone, 100 law enforcement agencies increased their DUI patrols, arresting 593 people for alleged drunk driving. Seventy-two of those arrests happened at sobriety checkpoints.

Defending Against Colorado DUI Charges

Drunk driving charges should never be taken lightly. If you have been arrested for drunk driving during the 100 Days of Heat, contact an experienced Colorado DUI defense attorney as soon as possible. If convicted of DUI, you may face extensive jail time, driver's license suspension, fines, probation, alcohol education courses, community service and the required installation of an ignition interlock device.

A criminal defense attorney can work to minimize the consequences of your charges, whether you are facing charges for driving while ability impaired (DWAI), felony DUI or anything in between.
