Law enforcement agencies throughout Nevada are cracking down on impaired driving from Feb. 1-15.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says that Las Vegas drivers can expect to see double or even triple the usual law enforcement presence on the roads.

"Residents can expect to see a heavy saturation of Troopers during Super Bowl weekend," NHP Trooper Jason Buratczuk wrote in a statement to the press. "This is fair warning, make the right decision, drive sober or be prepared to face the consequences." 

Law enforcement officials urge residents to designate a sober driver before drinking and to use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation if impaired.

If you see a drunk driver on the road, call 911.
