Checkpoints and patrols will be conducted June 6 and June 20 in various undisclosed locations throughout Doña Ana County. Checkpoints are usually set up between 6 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.
