Here’s Where the Most DUI Arrests Occur in Denver, a Recent Study Reports :
Not all states are equal when it comes to making DUI arrests. In fact, although about 1.16 million DUI arrests were made across the U.S. in 2013 (according to the FBI), a recent study from Project Know reports that Colorado ranks third for making the most DUI arrests in the nation in 2013 (which is the most recent year for which statistics are currently available).
This study went even further, however, breaking down the number of DUI arrests for some of the largest cities in the U.S. – including Denver. Analyzing DUI arrest data for 30+ different Denver neighborhoods, researchers found that the Denver neighborhoods where the most DUI arrests were made included:
- Stapleton, with 83 DUI arrests (over the year or so period)
- Five Points, with 79 DUI arrests
- Capitol Hill, with 72 DUI arrests
- Montbello, with 68 DUI arrests
- Baker, with 68 DUI arrests
- Lincoln Park, with 65 DUI arrests
- Westwood, with 64 DUI arrests
- Highland, with 60 DUI arrests
- Globeville, with 55 DUI arrests
- Hampden South, with 54 DUI arrests.
It’s important to note that this study (and the data it reviewed) did not distinguish between alcohol-related DUI arrests versus drug-related DUI arrests.
Given that law enforcement officials’ have become increasingly focused on targeting stoned drivers in Colorado, differentiating between these numbers may be key to education, enforcement and deterrent efforts.
