ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Law enforcement agencies around New Mexico are planning to be out in full force, looking for suspected drunken drivers during the New Year's holiday and beyond.
    
The New Mexico Department of Transportation's Holiday Superblitz continues through Jan. 5. Some local agencies have also planned enforcement actions through the end of January.
    
As part of the Superblitz, state, local and tribal officers will be conducting sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols as well as looking for other traffic violations.
    
The San Juan County Sheriff's Office and the Clovis Police Department are among those participating in the statewide DWI crackdown.
    
Sgt. Devon Dollar says the San Juan County Sheriff's Office is encouraging citizens in northwestern New Mexico to take an active role by reporting suspected drunken drivers by calling 911.
