During Office Party Weekend, the CSP and LEAF grant agencies will conduct DUI saturation patrols and increased patrols. The CSP will also assist local enforcement agencies with their DUI enforcement efforts. These agencies file their DUI enforcement plans on CDOT’s website at www.dot.state.co.us/trafficsafety/. To see the plans, choose Reports on the header and then choose Enf. Period Plans. Select Office Party Weekend 2005 as the enforcement period and click on Report.

A mi entender el término "DUI" también debió añadirse a la pregunta. Si no me equivoco, significa "Driving Under Influence", o sea, conducir/manejar bajo los efectos del alcohol u otras sustancias.

Por tanto, las patrullas realizadas deben entenderse, a mi parecer, como patrullas de control de alcoholemia. Supongo que en ese caso se hace como en España, que o bien se detiene a un conductor sospechoso de manejar/conducir bebido y se le hace una prueba in situ con un aparato de mano, o bien que se establece un control fijo en una carretera y se detiene aleatoriamente a conductores en ese lugar.
