Drunk driving continues to be one of the leading causes of car crash fatalities in the US and states are taking steps to help prevent drunk driving and the injuries and fatalities that result from DUIs each year. Colorado has a zero tolerance for drunk driving. This means that if an individual is found to be driving while influenced by drugs or alcohol, they will go to jail and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Drunk drivers who cause accidents will also be further prosecuted for any crimes that may relate to the accident, up to and including vehicular manslaughter.
Police officers throughout Colorado and across all police agencies are always on the lookout for suspicious driving. Preventing and stopping drunk driving is a particular focus of the Colorado State Patrol and is seen as a priority by the other police departments throughout the state. When deemed necessary, the State Patrol will go so far as to set up sobriety check points along road ways. These check points are designed to remove drunk drivers from the roads and keep all other drivers safe.
Accidents in which one driver acted irregularly are put under particular suspicion and BAC blood tests are common following accidents where testing an individual’s sobriety in the field is impossible. When a driver in a car accident is found to be under the influence of alcohol, that driver will not only likely end up being found to be fully liable for the accident, they will also be charged with a DUI and taken into custody.
