In response, Colorado State Patrol is stepping up to keep a closer eye on potential drunk drivers.
There have been more than 1,300 people arrested for driving under the influence on Colorado since Thanksgiving. Many free options are available in Denver to ensure safe transportation during the holiday.
There are ways you can get free transportation for instance RTD is offering free bus rides throughout the metro area. Local attorney Mike Sawaya is picking up the tab this weekend for anyone who uses a taxi in Denver. Just send him a bill up to $35.
Sawaya lost his sister in a car accident involving a drunk driver. He hopes that people take him up on his offer to prevent the headache and the heartaches driving under the influence can cause.
