This year’s holiday DWI Super Blitz kicks off Dec. 21, continuing through Jan. 6.Lt. Chuck Ney explained in an effort to make Los Alamos County roads safer for holiday travelers, officers from the Los Alamos County Police Department are ready to crack down on drunk drivers.The agency will conduct sobriety checkpoints on heavily traveled roads. They’ll also conduct saturation patrols aimed at detecting and arresting motorists who choose to drive after drinking.“Tragically, alcohol is often a factor in holiday crashes,” Ney said. “Many people travel to gatherings of family and friends during the holiday period and that is why stepped up DWI enforcement is critical during this time of year.During this year’s Super Blitz, officers will be out in force, and Ney said the public can help reduce the threat drunk drivers pose to motorists by calling the Drunk Busters hotline anytime they spot a suspected drunk driver. The number to call from a cell phone is simple: Pound-D-W-I, or Pound-3-9-4. The Drunk Busters program, now in its second year, has been very successful in encouraging individuals to take action to stop drunk driving, he said.“Citizens in Los Alamos also can call the Los Alamos County Police Dept directly at 662-8222 to report drunk drivers in our community,” Ney said.
