SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Department of Transportation has launched a new campaign aimed at curbing the over-serving of alcohol to patrons at bars and other establishments around the state.

The campaign has been dubbed “Buzzkill.” It includes ads emphasizing the responsibility of bartenders and servers to cut off patrons when they’ve had too much to drink.

There’s also a video to help bartenders and servers identify drunken customers. They’ll be required to watch it as a part of their alcohol server training.

Napkins and coasters outlining the Buzzkill campaign also will be distributed.

It’s illegal for an establishment in New Mexico to over-serve anyone - even if they’re not driving. In the last year alone, state officials say 75 establishments were cited for over-serving.
