The Colorado State Patrol says it's hit a new record, but not necessarily one to brag about.

Law enforcement agencies across the state arrested 569 people during their New Years crackdown on drunk driving.

That's up almost 40-percent from three years ago and the most DUI arrests since the sting started ten years ago.

Troopers say more than 200 people are killed in Colorado every year in alcohol related crashes and they'll continue to be aggressive in enforcing the law.
