Memorial Day weekend is known throughout the country as the unofficial start to summer. Individuals who reside in the state of Colorado take advantage of what is for many a three-day weekend and get together with friends and loved ones to socialize. In many of those cases the socialization includes the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
In an effort to keep drunk driving car accidents to a minimum over the holiday weekend, law enforcement agencies across the nation, including in the state of Colorado, have increased the number of law enforcement officers on the road. Because of this, drivers in communities throughout the Denver area should be cautious on the roads.
