New Mexico state police say they will be increasing patrols along Interstate 10 over the Labor Day weekend.
State police say they, along with city and county law enforcement agencies, are joining a multi-state effort to make the interstate that runs east to west through the southernmost part of the United States safer.
Police say they will be on the lookout for drivers who are drunk, speeding, inattentive or not wearing seatbelts. And in addition to a saturation of patrol cars, they say they will have aircraft support to patrol the highway as it runs through Dona Ana, Luna and Hidalgo counties.
