Watch your intake this weekend!
By Geoffrey Plant [ Fri Feb 19 2016 9:35 PM ]
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.

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
By Geoffrey Plant [ Fri Jan 22 2016 8:03 PM ]
.... 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.

By Megan Reneau [ Thu Dec 24 2015 12:22 PM ]
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
By Geoffrey Plant [ Fri Oct 30 2015 4:19 PM ]
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.
