Alleged drunk driver may need to pay for replacement of visitor kiosk

Earlier this month, a man suspected of driving under the influence (DUI) crashed into a visitor kiosk located on the Davidson Mesa. The kiosk has been a fixture on U.S. 36 for over 20 years. Unfortunately, visitors will now be required to find maps elsewhere, as the kiosk has been deemed to be beyond repair. Officials have not definitively decided yet whether or not to replace the kiosk, but it will likely be replaced.

No Consistency in Drunk Driving Penalties Across the U.S.

If a person in Colorado is convicted of driving under the influence (DUI), he or she faces the potential of up to six months in jail - just for a first offense; subsequent offenses raise possible jail sentences as high as one year. However, if that same person was stopped by police for driving under the influence in Wisconsin, he or she would merely receive a ticket for what that state considers a civil infraction, similar to speeding.

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).

Drunk Driving Convictions and 100 Days of Heat

Colorado drivers are taking the heat this summer as part of the Colorado Department of Transportation's statewide drunk driving campaign, Checkpoint Colorado - 100 Days of Heat. The campaign runs from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. The goal? To arrest drunk drivers on the road before they cause a DUI accident.
