COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - It’s high school and college graduation time and authorities are warning students there will be increased enforcement of DUI laws across the state.

Authorities are going to high schools in Colorado Springs to make sure students are aware of the severe consequences of drinking and driving.

Colorado Springs Police Department spokeswoman Catherine Buckley says the city gets grant money to keep additional DUI specialists on the road during special enforcement periods, including high school and college graduations.

Police are warning students that an arrest can ruin the first half of their lives and their careers.

Buckley recommends parents and graduates to talk before any celebration begins and make arrangements to keep them safe.
