DUI crackdown in force for Labor Day

summit daily news

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office will have additional deputies patrolling local roads this Labor Day weekend, but there won’t be any DUI checkpoints, according to Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Paulette Horr.

The Sheriff’s Office reminds folks to use designated drivers and the Summit Stage when they’ve been drinking because “DUIs will not be tolerated,” Horr said.

The state’s annual 100-day Heat Is On campaign continues through Labor Day. During this year’s Memorial Day weekend, 599 drivers were arrested statewide for DUI. Elsewhere in Colorado, 150 sobriety checkpoints have been planned this summer, according to a press release from Denver attorneys Rosenthal and Heymann.
