    The Texas Department of Public Safety has increased anti-DWI efforts during spring break.

    DPS says troopers have added patrols through the end of next weekend 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.
