PUNTOS DE REVISION DWI PROGRAMADOS PARA SEPTIEMBRE

Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Office deputies have planned several sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols during the month of September. These activities are part of an ongoing effort to reduce DWI-related crashes, injuries and deaths.

            Checkpoints and patrols will be conducted on Sept. 12-13, Sept. 19-21, Sept. 23 and Sept. 26-30 in various undisclosed locations throughout Doña Ana County. Checkpoints are usually set up between 4 p.m. and 4 a.m. Deputies will be looking for all types of violations with an emphasis on intoxicated drivers.

New Mexico law allows for the seizure or forfeiture of vehicles driven by people who have been convicted of multiple DWI offenses or who are driving on suspended or revoked licenses at the time of a DWI arrest.
