The Texas Department of Public safety, along with the El Paso Police Department and the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office are stepping up DWI patrols from today through the new year.

Extra officers will be out looking for drunk drivers, speeders and people not wearing their seat belts.

If you have a little too much egg in your nog this holiday season, please don't drive. Arrange a designated driver, call a cab, call an uber driver; do anything but get behind the wheel yourself. Depending on where you are and where you're going, you may even be able to take a pedicab.

Also, thanks to Sun Metro and the Sun City cab company, free rides are available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. All you have to do is call (915) 212-7777. Have fun guys but, be safe!
