Clovis - Curry County Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Jan. 18.
The Clovis Police Department will be conducting sobriety checkpoints and DWI saturation patrols in February. DWI Checkpoints will be conducted on February 8th and 15th, 2019. Officers will be specifically targeting alcohol and drug-impaired drivers.
According to UNM research dated 2014, 44.1% of all fatal crashes involved alcohol and 40.1% of alcohol-involved drivers in crashes were aged 20-29 (safernm.org). Though the number of alcohol related crashes in New Mexico has declined by roughly 72% since 2000, we still have a way to go. Law enforcement will be highly visible, trying to keep our roads safe for all of our family members.
