JACKSON, Tenn.- If you are driving around over the next few days, expect to see more Tennessee troopers on the roadways.

Troopers will be stepping up enforcement over the Super Bowl weekend.

One county from each of the eight THP districts will participate in the "No Refusal" campaign. That means if a driver suspected of being under the influence refuses to take a field sobriety test, officers will call a judge and get a warrant for a blood sample.

In West Tennessee, Dyer and Weakley Counties were selected for the "No Refusal" campaign.
