DPS increases DWI patrols over holidays

Posted: Updated:

Law enforcement officers are on high alert to make the roads safer this holiday season.

DPS said troopers will be out in full force over the next couple of weeks. Drunk driving accidents typically increase during Christmas and New Years, so the department said it is bringing in more DWI patrols.

Last year, troopers made more than 1,200 DWI arrests here in Texas during the holiday season.

So if you plan on drinking, be sure to call a cab or designate a sober driver.
