On May 4, 2019, Fort Collins Police, in conjunction with the Northern Colorado Traffic Safety Taskforce, will host a multi-agency DUI Sobriety Checkpoint in Fort Collins.

Sobriety Checkpoints are used to help reduce collisions involving intoxicated and impaired motorists. The checkpoints are also a law enforcement tool to apprehend the impaired motorists before they injure others and destroy property.

This event is sponsored by the Colorado Department of Transportation, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, Colorado State Patrol, UCHealth, Colorado State University Police Department, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Loveland Police Department, and Fort Collins Police Services.

In addition to removing impaired motorists, the checkpoint aims to increase awareness about impaired driving and its consequences. Over 10,800 people were killed by impaired motorists in 2017, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Remember: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over!
