To keep impaired drivers off the road this weekend, Windsor Police will participate in The Heat Is On Super Bowl Weekend DUI enforcement period, led by the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Colorado State Patrol. The enforcement period happens Friday, Feb. 11 through Monday, Feb. 14. Locally, Windsor officers will be on the road, looking to curb dangerous driving.
“One fatality caused by impaired driving is one fatality too many since crashes caused by impaired driving are completely avoidable,” said Sergeant Aaron McConnaughey. “We know people are looking forward to Super Bowl Sunday and there will likely be weekend festivities that involve alcohol. We want people to plan so they can avoid drinking and driving. Everyone’s safety is that simple. Have a plan. Don’t drink and drive.”
In 2021, Windsor Police responded to 96 reports of impaired driving and they responded to five crashes involving substance impairment, three of which resulted in fatalities.
In addition to supporting the state’s 16 annual Heat is On campaigns, Windsor Police also participate in the annual Mothers Against Drunk Driving Tie One On for Safety red ribbon campaign. “Keeping people safe is our number one priority,” said McConnaughey.
