No April Fools joke here. If you're planning to party this month, don't drive!

Drinking and driving isn't a good idea, anywhere and, throughout April, it's an even worse idea in Las Cruces. At least two sobriety checkpoints and three "saturation" patrols are planned this month.

They'll also be watching for other violations and drivers on cell phones. If you do have a few drinks, you can call for a discounted cab ride home between 5:30 p.m. and 3 a.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and holidays. Las Cruces Shuttle and Taxi will take up to two people home for $5.00 or up to four home for $10.00. Just call 575-524-TAXI.

There are no DWI checkpoints planned in El Paso but, insurance checkpoints pop up all the time and EPPD are always watching. For a free cab ride home in El Chuco, call (915) 212 - 7777 anytime!
