DUI Crackdowns

Some Colorado drivers could kick off 2004 with a major blemish on their driving records.

C-DOT reports at least 115 people were caught drinking and driving last night.

Police across the state have stepped up their patrols for their DUI crackdown which lasts until the weekends.

The number of arrests so far this year is down from New Year's Eve last year when 135 people were caught for driving under the influence.

More than 9 hundred arrests have been tallied between December 19th through today.

That's down from more than 13 hundred arrests made last year during the same period.

Colorado Springs police have made the most arrests so far with 71.
