Police Blotter | New Mexico Police checkpoints and saturation patrols set in counties across state this month


State police will conduct sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols, and registration, insurance, and driver’s license checkpoints in all New Mexico counties this month.

We are bringing awareness to these events to reduce impaired driving-related fatalities through continued media attention and intensive advertising.

These checkpoints are helping to change society’s attitude about driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.

Many lives could be saved yearly if every driver decides not to drive impaired.
