Colorado State Patrol cracking down holiday patrols, asks public to celebrate July 4 responsibly
CRAIG — Troopers from Colorado State Patrol and area law enforcement officers will increase patrols as they look for impaired drivers through Thursday, July 5, as part of the agency’s Heat is On campaign to protect the public during Fourth of July celebrations.
July 2017 saw 73 fatalities reported, of which 30 were caused by impaired drivers, according to CSP.
About 400 impaired drivers were arrested during the 2017 campaign.
Troopers ask drivers to follow the law while having fun and celebrating America’s independence this Fourth of July by making the right decisions and asking for help from a sober driver.
Residents can report a suspected impaired driver by dialing *CSP (*277) from a cellphone.
