LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- It's a big game and a big weekend for Las Vegas.

As many as 311,000 people are expected to be in town for Super Bowl XLVII. And along with the fun, comes a warning from local police.

Officers will be out in force looking for drunk drivers this weekend.

Most law enforcement agencies will combine efforts to conduct sobriety checkpoints in several locations in the Las Vegas Valley.

In Las Vegas, one checkpoint will be at Boulder Highway and Mayorga, which has been a high-traffic area for accidents and impaired drivers.

Last year there were three fatal accident in Nevada on Super Bowl weekend with two of those in Clark County.

Last year, 258 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents on Nevada roads and alcohol was a contributing factor in 42 deaths, according to the Nevada Department of Public Safety.

News 3's Denise Rosch is near I-15 and Lake Mead with more.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
