According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, more than 26,000 people are arrested for DUI and more than 150 people are killed in alcohol-related traffic crashes each year in Colorado. In an effort to increase awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence and keep the roads safer for all drivers, the City of Arvada has adopted the Colorado Department of Transportation's Drink, Don't Drive campaign.
