It is amazing to me that every week there are more DUI's. When are people going to catch on that if you drink and drive, you are going to get a DUI. It is the number one arrest for Steamboat. There is a bus, a taxi service and I would think most people are even within walking distance, not to mention a sober bloke that would gladly give them a lift.

DUI's are a great revenue source for the government! DUI's help stimulate the growth of local lawyers! The increase in DUI's are kind of scary!


Gladys 9 years ago

It IS scary because it is a known fact that DUI's are a great revenue source for Routt Co., which means an obvious blatant disrespect for the law...or just plain stupidity. Either one is dangerous.

Gladys: I believe the reason for the increase for DUI is becuase: 1. People, even teens can get it easy. Why? Because it can be a high valued black market product and these people want it because they are breaking the law and the love the feeling. 2. Some people (mostly teens) have not been exposed to alcohol and that's when curiosity comes in. "Curiosity killed the cat." 3. Teens love to party, proms or house parties can be an easy way to get drunk soon they have no idea what is going on and get in a car........

I know this sounds crazy, but I believe lowering the drinking age can help stop this problem. When it is lowerd, kids get it faster and the price goes down and people could perhaps loose interest. This also means kids can be exposed to the effects of drinking and wont do it, unless a special occasion. Think about it, kids in Russia, Italy and other countries can drink at a young age yet they do not have the problems we do. These people still do great in school and accomplish big things. However, I could be totally wrong, perhaps an increased ammount of police men at each party in STMBT could help stop this predicement.

I absolutely disagree to lower the drinking age - I would rather see it raised. In this week's arrest resport, there was only one MIP, the other 3 were ages 23, 29 and 31. And age aside, the issue here is more about driving while drinking. I am glad these people are getting caught before they harm themselves or someone else...and maybe it will act as a wake up call for some.

Question: Why were these drivers NOT allowed to have a sheriff's deputy drive them home and not be taken to jail??? If it is fair for the sheriff to get this treatment, why is it not equal treatment for everyone????
