Description

Albuquerque Tribune reports on New Mexico's drinking and driving problem: New Mexico leads the nation in DWI-related deaths per capita every year; reporters find that the bonds are set too low to provide a deterrent; one of every four cases that goes to court gets dismissed; average fines for those convicted are $17; average jail stay is a week; many drivers have 20 or more DWI convictions on their records, but the exact number is unknown because the state record-keeping system is so faulty.
