Blood Alcohol Limit Chart

There will be increased patrols during the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Law enforcement will be looking for drunk drivers.

The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office will be among those with increased patrols. Sheriff Kirk Taylor says it's important to know your limits and have a designated driver.

“The designated driver approach is a great movement. A friend or family member that will agree to stay sober while others drink alcohol is a hero. They watch out for their friends’ best interest and then get them home safely. Have the conversation about transportation before everyone starts drinking and hand over the keys right then. We want everyone home safe this weekend,” Taylor said in a statement released by the Sheriff's Office.
