ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – State police are ramping up efforts to catch drunk drivers.

They’re planning a series of sobriety checkpoints and saturation patrols across the state. They hope the increased presence will cut down on alcohol-related deaths.

Three-hundred-and-sixty-nine people died on New Mexico roads between January and November of this year. That’s more than last year, but fewer crashes this year have had alcohol involved.
