“Driving is a privilege, not a right”
But let’s face it: In Colorado, a car is critical. Our public transportation system is one of the best in the country, but it is no match for the convenience and ease of having your own vehicle.
If you are suspected of drunk driving, you will be asked to perform field sobriety tests and provide a sample of your breath or blood. If the officer determines that you are intoxicated, you will be arrested. Your court case will begin where you will fight for your freedom. In addition, you will need to have a separate fight at a hearing to continue driving.
If you are later convicted of certain crimes, your license will also be suspended or revoked.
