Starting today, the definition of a persistent drunk driver just got a little tighter in Colorado.
Several new state laws take effect today, including one that lowers the blood alcohol level definition for persistent drunk drivers from point-two percent to point-one-seven percent. That law also requires violators to drive with an ignition interlock device.
Another new law bars the public posting of a person's Social Security number or transmitting it over the Internet unless the information is encrypted.
And as of today, home sale contracts must disclose whether properties were ever used as a methamphetamine laboratory, with hazardous chemicals requiring a costly cleanup.
