Share it Please
Colorado State Patrol will have extra troopers on the state’s highways through Monday, as troopers look to crack down on impaired driving over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
Last year, 411 people were arrested for driving under the influence during a Thanksgiving enforcement period. CSP and partnering law-enforcement agencies across the state use 12 DUI enforcement periods throughout the year in an effort to increase roadway safety around national holidays and large public events.
“It’s our most important job, along with other law enforcement agencies, to make sure that people get to where they need to be safely for Thanksgiving by getting impaired drivers off of the roads,” CSP Chief Scott Hernandez said in a written release.
