The Albuquerque Police Department’s Metro-Traffic Division wrapped up a successful operation targeting aggressive drivers on Paseo Del Norte and Coors Boulevard.

On the evening of August 19, officers set up the “No Need to Speed” operation along Coors Boulevard between Interstate 40 and Paseo Del Norte, and on Paseo Del Norte between Coors and I-25.

As a result, officers handed out 126 speeding citations, 109 other moving citations, and one citation for reckless driving. In addition, there were two misdemeanor warrant arrests and one DWI arrest.

The Metro-Traffic Division specifically targeted these areas due to an increase in complaints from the public and an uptick in serious and fatal crashes.
