The law enforcement agencies of the Weld County DUI Task Force will be conducting increased DUI saturation patrols and sobriety checkpoints in Weld County during the National Crackdown and upcoming Labor Day weekend Enforcement Period that starts Friday, August 20th and runs through Tuesday, September 7th, 2010. Sobriety checkpoints and increased DUI saturation patrols can take place on any given night at any location county-wide.

By conducting sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols this task force strives to increase public awareness about the dangers of impaired driving, as well as making the roads safer for those traveling in and through Weld County.
