Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department to conduct DWI checkpoints, saturation patrols this weekend

NM DOT announces two major weekend construction closures around the Big I

This weekend will see the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department conducting saturation patrols and checkpoints throughout the county, with deputies on the lookout for aggressive driving, seatbelt use, proper child safety restraints, valid insurance and registration and driving under the influence.

These patrols and checkpoints begin today and will continue through Saturday, August 27th. The BCSO asks local media to make the public aware of their presence in the hopes of deterring these preventable driving practices.

Beginning at 9pm this evening, according to the New Mexico Department of Transportation, the I-25 Northbound exit ramp at Lomas will be closed, as will the I-25 Northbound flyover ramp to Eastbound I-40. Detours will be posted near these work zones.

As always, avoiding a DWI is in motorists' hands.

BCSO Conducting DWI Checkpoints and Saturation Patrols Today, Aug 12th Thru Saturday, August 13th

Construction-Related Lane Closures Around the Big I Aug. 12th to Aug. 15th

The Bernalillo County Sheriff's Office will be be conducting saturation patrols this weekend, looking for people driving under the influence and driving aggressively. Checkpoints will be set up in the North Valley to further check driver's insurance compliance, seatbelt compliance as well as child safety restraints in vehicles.

These checkpoints and saturation patrols are in effect thru Saturday Aug. 13th.

Let us all take some responsibility for bringing down our state's drunk driving numbers. This can be accomplished with greater public awareness, in conjunction with more effective enforcement by local law organizations. Fundamentally, drivers can avoid trouble by designating a driver, driving respectfully, buckling your seat belts and knowing when to find alternate carriage home from any party or show if you've tied one on.

There are also some concomitant construction projects affecting the Big I area from Aug, 12 thru Aug. 15th. As Follows:

I-25 Southbound bridge over Menaul will have right lane closures.

I-40 Eastbound over University Blvd (east of the Big I) will have various lanes closed.

If you are heading north on I-25 to eastbound I-40: left lane will be closed during this time.

If in doubt as to your ability to drive, CALL A TAXI.

Sobriety Patrols Through the North East Heights Tonight and Saturday Night

Watch your intake this weekend!

Most Burquenos expect checkpoints and saturation patrols in the downtown and university neighborhoods. Studies have shown, however, alcohol-related crashes don't discriminate between the ABQ valley and the frights.

Whether you're on your way home from the titty bar or bringing a stranger back to the base: call a cab, uber or, well, walk.

Let's be careful out there.

According to neurobiologist Douglas Fields, the same group of neurons that help you react quickly in times of danger are the same ones that make people "just snap."

DWI penalties became a whole lot stiffer last week, even though we had the lowest number of drunk-driving-related deaths in over 20 years during 2015. So, of course, a new study suggests that harsher punishments aren't likely to deter drunk driving.

APD Has an Operations Plan in Place!

Man will judge man in a screening process by which trained man ascertains the sobriety of any and all men, regardless of race gender creed or smell

.... Actually, you may be judged by your smell as this can be a primary indicator of intoxication. Or you just worked a shift behind the bar at Anodyne where a girl's hair, thanks to the high reach up to the bottles shelf—oh, nice ass, too—can end up more combustible than that orgy in Satyricon. This will make you appear drunk when really you smell like alcohol because it was dripping all over your hair every time someone ordered a fucking top-shelf Rum and Coke.

As always, the authoritIes want you to know the general neighborhood where the checkpoint will be however, Weekly Alibi cannot divulge the exact location. Somewhere in the vicinity of Walmart on San Mateo and the Long John Sliver's on Central APD will be conducting a sobriety checkpoint.

Avoid the cuffs and take advantage of the ever-increasing stable of ride services. By simply starting your night with a ride from one of Albuquerque's taxi services or, if you're under thirty, Uber. Unfortunately, AAA's Tipsy Tow service appears to have been discontinued in Albuquerque, but Albuquerque Cab does offer a free ride home (10pm-2am, Fri & Sat) through their Tavern Taxi service.

Post Christmas DWI Checkpoints

Coping after Christmas? There will be DWI checkpoints in the Northwest Command Area (I-40 area) on December 26 and 27 starting around 10 pm and going till 3 am. If you picked up our Boozy Gift Guide, maybe you'll remember I wrote about how to get home safely after a night of shenanigans (aka getting sloshed).

You can bookmark it, cut it out of the paper and put it in your wallet or bra, write it down on your arm, hell, get it tattooed on your arm; just don't drive drunk!

Stay safe and happy holidays, you noobs.

Halloween DWI Checkpoint in Downtown Albuquerque This Saturday Night

Albuquerque Police want Halloween revelers to know that there will be a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in the Downtown area this Saturday night. Regulars and those living in the area can probably guess that APD will set up their checkpoint at either Central and Broadway or Coal and Broadway. No matter how many news outlets publish this information, APD will still bust some folks driving under the influence. So dress up in your sexy Donald Trump costume and hit the bars downtown, dance, see some music, but if you get too intoxicated to drive—and with the BAC limit at .08%, "too intoxicated" isn't hard to achieve—find another way to get home or to your booty call or dealer's house.

Have a safe Halloween by simply starting your night with a ride from one of Albuquerque's taxi services or, if you're under thirty, Uber. Unfortunately, AAA's Tipsy Tow service appears to have been discontinued in Albuquerque, but Albuquerque Cab does offer a free ride home (10pm-2am, Fri & Sat) through their Tavern Taxi service.
