Spring Break is coming up and the Texas Department of Transportation is making extra effort to keep drivers safe.

Last Spring Break, there were 459 crashes in Texas involving young drunk drivers.

16 of those crashes were deadly.

TXDOT kicked off the "Plan While You Can" campaign on March 1 to increase DUI patrols.

The campaign is going all over Texas using gaming technology to replicate the effects of alcohol.

The tour will be stopping at several locations across the state.

For more information, call (512) 463-8700.
