Men in their 20s accounted for Almost a third of Colorado DUI cases last year, report finds

Men in their 20s accounted for almost a third of all DUI cases in Colorado in 2016, according to a first-of-its-kind detailed report on impaired driving in the state which also found most people charged with DUI are ultimately convicted.

Young men were the largest group of defendants in a state analysis of the 27,000-plus DUI court cases filed across the state in 2016, although the group only represents about 8 percent of the nation ’s total population. Men as a whole represented about three quarters of all cases of driving under the influence.

Analysts also found that more than a third of defendants had a previous DUI conviction.
