New Mexico targets drunk drivers during the holidays

Albuquerque, New Mexico (AP) 12-07

Law enforcement officers from around New Mexico and some American Indian communities are teaming up to keep drunk drivers off the roads.

Officers have started a holiday season DWI Super Blitz that includes increased saturation patrols and more sobriety checkpoints.

The blitz coincides with the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs’ “Don’t Shatter the Dream” mobilization against drunken driving.

New Mexico DWI Czar Rachel O’Connor says three other initiatives also will help.

The first is an agreement between the Navajo Nation and the McKinley County Sheriff’s Office that allows tribal officers to patrol for suspected drunk drivers in McKinley County and for deputies to patrol for drunk drivers on Navajo land.

Another allows for DWI arrest information to be shared between the state and Laguna Pueblo.

The state also has launched an advertising campaign in the Four Corners region to curb DWI.
