Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Enforcement Program
The general goal of Connecticut’s Impaired Driving Program is to substantially reduce the number of alcohol-related crashes. The Impaired Driving Program emphasizes enforcement efforts of reducing driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol (DUI). Through cost-share-programming, it has been possible to substantially increase the number of officers throughout the State to engage in high-visibility DUI enforcement. Activities include a combination of extra DUI patrols and sobriety checkpoints. These activities convey to motorists a simple message: if they drive impaired, they will be caught.
