Don’t ruin your New Year’s Eve celebration with a DUI arrest

 

Ringing in the New Year can be a blast, but be cautious in your partying and don’t start off 2012 with an alcohol-related driving charge.  If you plan to imbibe a little holiday spirit, the best bet is to bring along a designated driver or rely on taxis and public transportation.

The Holiday Heat is On Campaign shifts into high gear with the advent of New Year’s Eve, and police departments throughout the state plan to beef up their patrol divisions with extra officers in order to reduce the likelihood of DUI-related accidents.  Some departments, including those in Denver and Fort Collins, will be focusing their efforts on downtown bar districts and the surrounding areas. As of this time, however, no agency has announced plans to stage DUI checkpoints.

Since the beginning of the holiday crackdown on November 22, more than 1,200 people have been arrested in Colorado for DUI. At least 850 of those arrests occurred during the “Holiday Office Party Enforcement Period” in early December.

If you are stopped for drinking and driving, keep calm and call an expert Denver DUI attorney; they can help guide you through the complex court and DMV processes to resolve your case.
