With Memorial Day and weekend approaching, the Denver Police Department reminds those who consume marijuana and/or alcohol to not get behind the wheel. During the holiday weekend, the Denver Police Department will operate DUI checkpoints and impaired driving saturation patrols at various locations throughout the city. Although the locations, dates, and times are undisclosed, drivers should be aware of the extra patrols and plan ahead for safe travels this weekend and always.
“As Denverites honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country this Memorial Day Weekend, we ask them to do so responsibly,” said Robert C. White, Denver Police Chief. “With the many transportation options in and around town, there is no excuse to drive while being under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Please plan ahead and make it a safe weekend for everyone!”
During Memorial Day Weekend in 2016, 46 drivers were arrested for driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol in Denver. Be smart, safe and consume responsibly.
