NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Multiple law enforcement agencies have joined forces for a "Booze It and Lose It" campaign during Super Bowl weekend.

The Tennessee Highway Safety Office was joined by Tennessee Highway Patrol, Davidson County Sheriff's Office and several other agencies to announce the campaign which will increase drunk driving enforcement throughout the mid-state.

"We are going to be saturating our highways, our streets and our communities, and we will be looking for those who make that dumb decision to go out and drive after having a few," said Smyrna Police Chief Kevin Arnold.

"If you're going to be out and about and you're going to celebrate with alcoholic beverages, have a plan, know the plan and stick with it. Have a designated driver. Do not drive. It's not worth the damages being done," said Dickson County Sheriff Jeff Bledsoe.

Even though the Tennessee Titans didn't make it all the way to the Super Bowl, “Voice of the Titans” Mike Keith encouraged fans to stay safe while watching and celebrating the big game.
