The ongoing "Heat is On" campaign is aimed at Colorado DUI and DWAI laws in hopes to reduce the number of injuries and fatalities on the roadways caused by impaired drivers. In 2016, 101 law enforcement agencies arrested 522 impaired drivers during the same enforcement period.

Numerous options are available to safely get a ride home in Colorado. Ride services like Uber, Lyft and Z-Trip are always an option. As well as public transportation.
