Guest:  Sam Cole Traffic Safety Communications Manager CDOT is has a programming running called Nothing Uglier Than a DUI.  They are collaborating with LYFT, they are giving people $10 off their ride to get them home safely.  They just need to go to the app and enter the code DUISRUGLY, it can only be used in the evening.  A DUI will have a fine and can even face jail time.  They have found that people will drive drunk at least 100 times before they are pulled over while driving impaired.  About a third of the fatalities this year has been because of an impaired driver.  As long as the funds are still available, the program will run until New Year’s Day. https://www.codot.gov/safety/impaired-driving
