In a New Year's Eve post, CDOT said goodbye to 2019 and hello to sober drivers.

To combat the total, the Department of Transportation urges drivers to "Use a designated driver, ride-hailing service or public transit to get home safe after your New Year’s festivities".

#TheHeatisOn, CDOT warns, so be safe this New Year's Eve in Northern Colorado.
