Holiday Patrols.

Amarillo, TX--More Texas troopers will soon hit the roadways, hoping to keep you safe this holiday season.

Extra DWI patrols will start on Tuesday and run through the New Year.

Those patrols will target drunk drivers, speeders and seatbelt violators.

Amarillo police will also step up their efforts to keep drunk drivers off the road.

Officers say last year nearly half of the city's deadly crashes involved drunk drivers.

Police are hoping others will do their part and not become a part of that statistic this year.
