A recent DUI crackdown in the State of Colorado cuts the number of alcohol–related fatalities nearly in half.
CDOT just released the new numbers. There were only 9 fatalities this year, compared to 16 last year.
The 18–day crackdown was part of the "Over the Limit, Under Arrest" campaign.
Grand junction police made 36 arrests during that time.
State–wide, more than 48–agencies participated in the crackdown, racking up almost 300 arrests.
