On September 12, 2012, MADD Colorado and its youth volunteers honored top law enforcement officers, prosecutors, victim advocates, judges, traffic safety advocates, and agencies statewide with a special dinner and awards presentation. The event was held at Mile High Station in Denver and included a keynote presentation by Dr. John Nicoletti, co-founder of Nicoletti-Flater Associates.
Lance Wood represented Bachus & Schanker, LLC at this event and took the opportunity to formally thank our law enforcement heroes for their vigilant efforts to keep Colorado's roadways safe from impaired drivers.
In the past year, there have been 127 DUI fatalities in Colorado. The aggressive efforts of law enforcement coupled with the growing use of ignition interlocks for convicted drunk drivers has helped decrease Colorado's drunk driving fatalities by 28 percent in recent years.
MADD Colorado is a division of the national Mothers Against Drunk Drivers national organization, the nation's largest nonprofit working to protect families from drunk drivers and underage drinking. For more information on MADD Colorado, go to http://www.madd.org/local-offices/co.
