Super Bowl DUI crackdown in Colorado

Super Bowl parties are planned all across southern Colorado this weekend. But if you're heading to one, make sure you have a DD. The Colorado State Patrol is revving up its The Heat is On campaign.

"Watching the Super Bowl is one of those American pastimes that people want to celebrate, and alcohol is often involved, so it's important be responsible," said Colonel James Wolfinbarger, Chief of the Colorado State Patrol. "Choose a sober designated driver before the kickoff. And remember, fans don't let fans drive drunk, so never let your friends get behind the wheel if they've had too much to drink."

CSP will be joined by 45 other law enforcement agencies in the crackdown.

The crackdown runs Friday night through Sunday.
