TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Law enforcement agencies are out in full force over Christmas looking for drunk drivers.

In 2011, Hillsborough County had 67 alcohol-related deaths on the road -- the highest out of any county in the state.

So extra Hillsborough deputies are patrolling the streets, on the lookout for impaired motorists.

A $145,0000 grant from the Florida Department of Transportation is helping pay for the extra manpower.

The entire Hillsborough DUI enforcement squad will be on patrol New Year's Eve.
