Mile High Magazine 07/04/2021 Colorado State Patrol

Guest: Sergeant Blake White The state patrol is expecting to see an increase in travel over the holiday weekend.  They are reminding people to stay alert and to not drink or text and drive.  In 2020, nine people were killed over the road on the 4th of July.  This year there has been an increase in people that have been pulled over for alcohol and drugged driving.  Driving while impaired is at .05 and Driving under the influence is .08, even if you are not in that range but show signs of being impaired you will still get a ticket or taken to jail. This year they will also be at Chatfield Reservoir to watching for impaired people who are driving their boats.  Fireworks that leave the ground or explodes are not legal in Colorado.  If you are caught with illegal fireworks you will be looking at a fine even jail time depending on the area you are in.  If you report illegal fireworks please do not call 911, call the non-emergency line.
