DPS Troopers Stepping Up Patrols This Weekend

State Troopers are beefing up their patrols this holiday weekend.

They say they'll be patrolling in areas where there's been alcohol-related crashes.

Last year, troopers made more than 1,000 DWI arrests.

They're urging everyone to enjoy the Fourth of July weekend but to enjoy it in a safe way.

Also, troopers in New Mexico will be conducting sobriety checkpoints to keep drunk drivers off the road.
