COLORADO – Colorado Law Enforcement agencies are teaming up with Wyoming Law Enforcement agencies this Friday, October 26th to combat impaired driving. The Colorado State University Rams will be playing the University of Wyoming Cowboys at Canvas Stadium at 8:00 P.M.
Law enforcement agencies are asking for fans to plan ahead and designate a sober driver, use public transportation, or a ride share service. There truly is no excuse to drive impaired when there are so many other options available.
“The fact that some drivers still make the voluntary choice to drive impaired is unacceptable, and the Colorado State Patrol will continue to find and arrest those drivers who make that wrong choice.” Colonel Matthew Packard, Chief of the Colorado State Patrol says. “Fans should be able to enjoy all the festivities and travel safely to and from without concerns of impaired drivers being on the road.”
For the fourth year in a row, there will be increased enforcement before, during, and after the game on Friday. The Colorado State Patrol will be joined by the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office, Loveland Police Department, Fort Collins Police Department, Colorado Springs University Police Department, Estes Park Police Department, and Windsor Police Department.
There will also be participation from several agencies in Wyoming to include the Wyoming Highway Patrol, Laramie Police Department, Albany County Sheriff’s Office, University of Wyoming Police Department, Laramie County Sheriff’s Office, Cheyenne Police Department, and Wyoming State Parks.
Drivers are reminded to help keep the roads safe and contact police to report suspected drunk drivers as well. They can dial *CSP (*277) or 303-239-4501 to reach a Colorado State Patrol Dispatcher to report their concerns.
