If you happen to be one of the unfortunate ones who were arrested, you should contact an experienced Colorado Springs DUI lawyer for help. Those who submitted to a blood test, should be receiving a revocation order from DMV in the next few weeks if your BAC result was over .08. That order requires you to act quickly to avoid the immediate revocation of your driver’s license.
