2007 Revisions to Colorado DWI Laws
 
The following matrix explains the only change that became effective January 1, 2007. The change reduced the BAC level for defining a Persistent Drunk Driver from .20 to .17. Subsequently, the BAC levels were reduced for the two levels of education as well as the treatment tracks. This matrix is included in the December 2006 supplement to Lesson 2 Level I and II Driving with Care Education - Participant Workbooks. Master copies are available from the Center for Impaired Driving Research and Evaluation (CIDRE) P.O. Box 17624 Boulder, CO 80308-0624. Phone: 303-442-5780, and from ADAD, 4055 S.
