DENVER (AP) – The Colorado State Patrol and law enforcement agencies throughout the state say they arrested more than 1,300 impaired drivers during a Labor Day campaign to cut down on accidents.

The state patrol said Tuesday the crackdown between Aug. 16 and Sept. 3 included saturation patrols throughout the state.

The crackdown is one of 12 impaired-driving initiatives that are targeting national holidays and large public events.
