The Colorado State University Police Department, in conjunction with the Larimer County DUI Task Force, hosted a DUI saturation event on Sat., June 28, to remove intoxicated motorists from Colorado roads. Members of the Colorado State Patrol, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Fort Collins Police Services and the Loveland Police Department were also involved.
The DUI saturation event, which was a part of the Colorado Department of Transportation’s "Over the Limit, Under Arrest" campaign, was from 3 – 10 p.m. During that time, 147 vehicles were contacted resulting in 18 arrests, including nine of for driving under the influence and one for driving under the influence of drugs.
This was one of several CDOT sponsored enforcements during the 2008 enforcement period. In an attempt to remove impaired and intoxicated motorists from the roadways of Colorado, local law enforcement agencies coordinated their efforts and shared resources to maximize results, making the event a success.
Remember: Over the Limit, Under Arrest.
