The Springs, Denver, and... Loveland. Seems weird, right?

Last year across the state they had 1,863 - this year 1,801; which comes out to be 45 per day on average, during the time frame.
There are a LOT of choices out there for getting home safely, without incident. Thinking and drinking smart are the only way we'll get the number down to zero.
