ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say more than 1,600 citations were issued for dangerous driving through a coordinated effort to crack down on road rage in Albuquerque.

Gov. Susana Martinez and Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry announced the results Monday for Operation Lilly. It’s named after the 4-year-old girl who was fatally shot in a road rage incident last year.

Following Lilly’s death, Martinez directed the New Mexico State Police to develop a plan to help curb dangerous driving and road rage in the Albuquerque area.

New Mexico State Police partnered with Albuquerque police and the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office to crack down on dangerous driving from Nov. 18 through the end of February.

Officers issued 1,676 citations for reckless or dangerous driving and made 25 arrests, including five for DWI.
