DENVER (AP) The Colorado State Patrol is stepping up DUI enforcement across the state this Super Bowl weekend.

Patrol Chief Scott Hernandez says that with the Broncos playing in the big game Sunday, troopers expect house parties and full bars and restaurants throughout Colorado. But partygoers can also expect to see an increased law enforcement presence aimed at keeping impaired drivers off the roads.

The Colorado Department of Transportation says that in 2013, 421 DUI arrests were made over Super Bowl weekend, a considerable increase from 2012 when 275 arrests were made. Authorities say the increase in arrests was a result of the increased enforcement, which this year started Friday and will continue through Monday.
