From Thursday to Monday, the Colorado Department of Transportation, Colorado State Patrol and local law enforcement agencies will conduct the Fourth of July DUI enforcement period to prevent impaired drivers from endangering themselves and others on the road.
CDOT is also introducing a new campaign, Take Some Time, to encourage the use of smartphone breathalyzers as a way to prevent impaired driving. The campaign aims to educate and raise awareness of the time it takes for a person’s BAC to return to zero after consuming alcohol.
The Fourth of July also marks the start of another partnership between CDOT and BACtrack to offer Colorado residents the chance to buy a personal breathalyzer for 50% off in an effort to make breathalyzers more accessible, educate Coloradans about blood alcohol content levels and reduce impaired driving.
This discount will be available through Sept. 15, or while supplies last. To purchase a breathalyzer, visit www.codot.bactrack.com.
