Alcohol and Impaired Driving

According to the Colorado Dept. of Transportation, “more than 26,000 people are arrested for DUI and over 150 people are killed in alcohol-related traffic crashes” each year in Colorado.  Alcohol is not the only problem, however — many fatalities occur as a result of drug-impaired driving as well.  CDOT has many resources on alcohol- and drug-impaired driving on its website.  Here you can find information on the Heat is On high-visibility enforcement campaign; DUI information; statistics and data; law enforcement info; a public service announcement; and even a downloadable smart phone app that lets you calculate your blood alcohol level.
