Motorcycle only enforcement:

Page 187:
Task Number: 10-07-71-04
Program Name: Motorcycle Rider Safety Education and Enforcement Program
Contractor: Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office
Program Manager: Paul Peterson

In 2008, thirteen motorcycle fatalities occurred in Jefferson County, the second highest number in state (2008 Colorado FARS). Six (46%) of those fatalities involved drivers with a BAC of 0.08% or higher, more than any other county in Colorado. Taverns located in the foothills communities of Morrison, Evergreen and Conifer are popular locations for some motorcyclists to gather during the riding season. Activities and costs include the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office partnering with DSEC to provide comprehensive speed and DUI enforcement in conjunction with a social marketing campaign to promote responsible motorcycling in the foothills communities of Jefferson County.
