Denver Checkpoints and DUI Enforcement – 4th of July Update

The “100 Days of Heat” DUI crackdown is igniting for the Fourth of July weekend, with over 100 law enforcement agencies and Colorado State Patrol troops hitting roadways with increased DUI patrols and sobriety checkpoints.   While local law enforcement agencies certainly hope for a safe and sober weekend, the holiday is generally filled with alcohol-fueled celebrations, community gatherings, and sporting events.  As such, the enforcement begins tonight at 6 p.m. and continues through 3 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5.  The state-wide effort is part of the summer-long “100 Days of Heat” campaign, an intensive DUI enforcement effort that began Memorial Day weekend and continues through Labor Day.

During last year’s Fourth of July DUI crackdown, half of the 10 traffic fatalities that occurred in the state involved alcohol, and 620 drivers were arrested for DUI.  Since the “100 Days of Heat” campaign began on Memorial Day Weekend, nearly 500 DUI arrests have already been made.  Currently, the following agencies are listed as having increased or saturation patrols during the July Fourth Weekend:
