The HEAT IS ON This Holiday Weekend

Contact: Shannon Cordingly, Public Information Officer, 970-376-7000 

“THE HEAT IS ON!”  The Gore Range DUI Task Force, which is compromised of Eagle County Sheriff’s Office, Avon Police Department, Vail Police Department, and Eagle Police Department, would like to remind everyone to make sure that they designate a sober driver especially for the weekend of 4th of July.

The Gore Range DUI Task Force will be teaming up with the Colorado State Patrol this weekend conducting sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols.  The overall goal for the Gore Range DUI Task Force is to save lives by deterring people from driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and arrest those that do.

“Help keep the communities of Eagle County safe this weekend,” said Sheriff Joe Hoy. “Designate a safe way to travel, and please don’t drink and drive.”
