New Mexico State Police will be conducting sobriety checkpoints, saturation patrols, and registration, insurance and driver’s license checkpoints in all New Mexico counties during the month of July.

The purpose of publicizing the checkpoints, according to a press release from the state police, is “to reduce alcohol-related fatalities through continued media attention … These checkpoints are helping to change society’s attitude about drinking and driving.

“Hundreds of lives could be saved each year if every driver had the courage to make the right decision not to drink and drive.”
