Volunteers and staff from Mothers Against Drunk Driving will team up with 39 law enforcement departments in Colorado as part of a nationwide impaired-driving crackdown this weekend for “Saturation Saturday.”
MADD will join law enforcement as they step up patrols, conduct sobriety checkpoints and increase public service messaging to remind everyone that if you drive drunk or impaired by other drugs, you will get caught. About 250 law enforcement agencies are participating in Saturation Saturday nationwide.
High-visibility law enforcement, such as sobriety checkpoints, is one of the key elements of MADD’s Campaign to Eliminate Drunk Driving, launched in 2006. The other elements of MADD’s campaign include passing laws to require ignition interlocks for all drunk driving offenders, support for advanced vehicle technology and taking personal responsibility by using Uber, public transportation, taxi or designating a non-drinking friend or family member if plans include alcohol.
