Enforcement of traffic law violations is essential to improving overall safety on roadways and reducing crashes.
New Mexico uses high-visibility enforcement and media to focus on violators of traffic safety laws including speeding, alcohol/impaired driving, occupant protection use, use of cell phones for calling or texting, and other violations. These efforts have been shown to result in reduced crashes, fatalities and injuries, and reduced numbers of repeat violations. If the public know about and see law enforcement on the streets, they are more likely to be aware of their driving behavior.
