Texas DPS ups anti-DWI efforts during spring break

AUSTIN, TX. (AP) - The Texas Department of Public Safety has increased anti-DWI efforts during spring break.

DPS says troopers have added patrols through Sunday to crack down on drunken driving. The extra patrols are funded through a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation.

DPS during 2011 spring break made nearly 1,300 DWI arrests.

The Department of Public Safety last week raised safety concerns about drug-related violence in Mexico and urged students on spring break to avoid heading south of the border.
