The Pagosa Springs Police Department will participate in the 2013  Fourth of July Weekend High Visibility Impaired Driving Enforcement (HVIDE) campaign.

Officers will increase patrols for the enforcement period, July 3- 8.

National traffic studies confirm that increased patrols provide a, “risk of apprehension,” thereby reducing the number of impaired driving traffic crashes.

The Pagosa Springs Police department wants to remind everyone that if they observe a driver they believe to be impaired to contact the Archuleta  County Combined  Dispatch Center at 731-2160 or dial 911.
