DWI Awareness & Prevention In Los Alamos County


The Los Alamos County DWI Planning Council is seeking the public’s input related to DWI in the community.

Residents may have seen banners, posters and coasters from the DWI Planning Council as it steps up to take a more active role in the community. Given that, the DWI Planning Council wants to hear from residents about it should spend State of New Mexico grant funds in Los Alamos.

Would residents participate of the DWI Planning Council offered a designated driver type of incentive (wear a bracelet, get free non-alcoholic drinks at a local bar that evening)? What about a taxi service for those who have had too much to drink? Should people pay a small fee for that or should it be free? The DWI Planning Council will use the community’s input to the survey as part of its first Strategic Planning Retreat coming up later this year. Help guide the DWI Planning Council in the best way to spend its funding.


For the past two decades, the state of New Mexico’s total alcohol-related death rate has consistently been nearly twice the national rate.
