The 4th of July is a great opportunity to spend time with your family, watch some fireworks, have a barbecue, hang out by the pool, and generally enjoy the company of friends and family. Whether you spend time with family that feel like friends or friends that feel like family, it is an excellent celebration of our country, and of everything that is important to us. In many cases, one aspect of that celebration will be a beer, or a glass of wine, or some other alcoholic beverage. Unfortunately, there were more drunk-driving fatalities in July than any other month in 2011 according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. It is important to remember that with the freedom that we celebrate on Independence Day comes the duty to act responsibly toward other people.

The Colorado State Patrol’s â€œThe Heat is Onâ€ campaign is an effort by the state patrol, in conjunction with over 80 other law enforcement agencies throughout the country, to â€œcrack downâ€ on drunk driving. Unfortunately, DUI investigations are not always conducted in accordance with the law, or in accordance with the rights we have as citizens of Colorado and the United States. While the goal of eliminating drunk driving and the needless pain and suffering that it causes is a fine one, the rights of individuals are not always respected in the process.
