If you see someone driving like this, (in Colorado) call Star-DUI (*384) or Star-CSP (*277) from a cellular phone.
Give the dispatcher the exact location (road and direction), a description of the vehicle, and the manner in which the vehicle is being driven. Do not attempt to follow or pursue the vehicle. Your call is free and may save a life — or many lives!
