Maps to Help Police Fight Colorado DUI's

Colorado State Patrol DUI MapOver the last year the Colorado State Patrol has been implementing a new data plotting technology that helps them identify hot-spots of DUI related accidents. The information is used to help them to better target their drunk driving patrols.

The CSP troop in Fort Collins is the first to use the technology which utilizes color coded pins to indicate the locations and types of accidents over a set period of time. In addition to patrolling major highways, the focus has included roads near liquor stores and recreation areas. While the troop has changed its patrol schedules and targets, a spokesperson said that it is the first year of the system’s use so its effectiveness is not yet known.

The mapping technology is being shared with the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, which says the collaboration has helped them better enforce the law and arrest motorists suspected of drunk driving in Colorado.
