The goal of Saturation Saturday is to send a unified message that drinking and driving will not be tolerated. “Over twelve agencies including New Mexico State Police all throughout the state will be conducting saturation patrols or checkpoints [on Saturday] so really, I’m sure in all communities, you will see law enforcement out there really enforcing the message ‘don’t drive impaired,'” says Lindsey Valdez, Regional Executive Director of MADD.
