SANTA FE — Law enforcement throughout the State will conduct checkpoints and saturation patrols during Cinco de Mayo celebrations, as the 10-day Super Blitz kicks-off today through May 9.
More than 60 law enforcement agencies will set up sobriety checkpoints to make sure individuals celebrating Cinco de Mayo don’t drink and drive. Mobile electronic signs along roadways will feature the message “Super Blitz in Progress; Cops Are Everywhere.”
“Individuals participating in Cinco de Mayo celebrations need to be aware of the consequences associated with a DWI arrest; a TV and radio campaign is geared toward educating New Mexico citizens about the State’s strong DWI penalties,” Rachel O’Connor, State DWI Czar said.
The DWI penalties rack card and posters were developed and published to complement the campaign. The materials are printed in both Spanish and English and feature the penalties for being arrested and convicted for a first offense on up to a felony offense that equates to four or more DWI convictions.
State, city, county and tribal law enforcement agencies will step-up enforcement and hand out the DWI penalties rack cards at checkpoints throughout the state.
