PHOENIX -- A large contingent of police officers will be patrolling freeways in the Phoenix area on Super Bowl Sunday with an eye out for drunken drivers.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said its stepped-up drunken driving enforcement will begin at 6 p.m. Sunday and will continue through Monday morning.

The enforcement includes a crackdown near the Waste Management Phoenix Open in north Scottsdale.

"We're doing a program called 'Know Your Limit' detail, where we contact all patrons exiting the event and give them a free portable breath test to show them what their blood alcohol concentration is," said Scottsdale Police Sgt. Tom Jenson. "Every year we do this, we increase contacts and see a decrease in arrests."
