“The Dallas Police Department will conduct a No-Refusal DWI Initiative for the Labor Day weekend holiday, beginning 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 29, and will conclude at 6 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2.
“During this initiative officers will secure a search warrant for a blood sample from all persons arrested for DWI who refuse to voluntarily give a breath and/or blood sample.”
So remember that as you are out and about over the long weekend. Celebrate all you want, but celebrate responsibly. If you drink, don’t drive. Designate a driver, call a friend, call a cab — something. Just don’t get behind the wheel if you are even just the teensiest bit tipsy. It’s not worth your life or someone else’s.
And oh yeah, don’t think you can escape just by not driving in Dallas. I am pretty sure all the other law enforcement agencies in the area will have their own “no-refusal initiatives” in force this weekend.
