SOBRIETY CHECK POINT SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, MAY 10TH

CLOVIS (KSMX)- As a public service announcement, the Clovis Police Department will be conducting sobriety checkpoints and DWI saturation patrols in the month of May. A DWI Checkpoint will be conducted on Friday, May 10th. Officers will be specifically targeting alcohol and drug-impaired drivers.

According to UNM research dated 2014, 44.1% of all fatal crashes involved alcohol and 40.1% of alcohol-involved drivers in crashes were aged 20-29 (safernm.org). Though the number of alcohol related crashes in New Mexico has declined by roughly 72% since 2000, the state still has a way to go to prevent these fatalities involving drinking and driving. Law enforcement will be highly visible, trying to keep our roads safe for all of our family members.
