Before Your Go, Know

“Every day, Colorado drivers are putting lives at risk by driving impaired. Each year, more than 26,000 people are arrested for DUI, and more than one-third of all Colorado traffic fatalities are alcohol-related.
With the goal of reducing the number of DUI-related fatalities and offenses in Colorado, CDOT has teamed with BACtrack to promote responsible drinking habits and the use of personal breathalyzers. BACtrack aims to help people monitor their blood alcohol content (BAC) to make informed and responsible decisions when it comes to driving.”
