ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – New Mexico State Police officers arrested more than 20 people suspected of drinking and driving in Albuquerque. That was from Thursday through Sunday. 

There was also a traffic crackdown by state police Monday along I-25. 

“These arrests highlight the dedication of our DWI Unit and officers in keeping New Mexico safe. Each DWI arrest made by my officers echoes the importance of responsible and sober driving. The consequences of driving under the influence can be severe, leading to accidents, injuries, and even loss of life,” said NMSP Chief Troy Weisler in a press release.

Police officers issued nearly 350 tickets between San Miguel and Doña Ana counties. 

“Impaired driving remains a significant concern, and we will continue to actively seek out suspected impaired drivers and take them off the road before they can harm our families.  I hope that these arrests serve as a stark reminder of the potential harm associated with impaired driving and the legal consequences that come with it,” said Weisler.
