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.
Tavern Taxi: (505)-999-1400
ABQ CAB: (505)-883-4888
Yellow/Checker Cab: (505)-247-8888
Green Cab: (505)-243-6800
