’100 Days of Heat’ DUI Crackdown Starts This Weekend
Northern Colorado law enforcement agencies begin the ’100 Days of Heat’ DUI enforcement campaign this weekend, traditionally one of deadliest weekends on Colorado highways. The campaign will last through the summer, ending Labor Day weekend. In 2011, 67 Coloradoans were killed in alcohol-related crashes during the summer months.
The minimum cost for a first-time DUI is $10,270. A DUI arrest will also result in jail time, loss of a driver’s license or ignition interlock, mandatory alcohol education classes and community service.

The Colorado State Patrol and more than 90 law enforcement agencies plan to conduct saturation and increased patrols over Memorial Day Weekend.
