Alcohol-related traffic deaths up in New Mexico

-A A +A

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — State records show more people died in alcohol-related traffic crashes last year in New Mexico.

Preliminary records of the Traffic Safety Bureau indicate 146 people were killed in highway crashes involving alcohol in 2011. That's up from 128 in 2010, but down from 152 in 2009.

Alcohol-involved traffic deaths accounted for 41 percent of the 355 people killed in highway crashes last year.

New Mexico law police plan to crack down on drunken driving through the weekend, including St. Patrick's Day, with more patrols and sobriety checkpoints.

Gov. Susana Martinez, other state officials and law enforcement representatives are announcing the anti-drunken driving campaign on Tuesday.

The Department of Transportation says the "superblitz" starts Wednesday and runs through March 19.
