The Dallas Police Department will conduct a No-Refusal DWI Initiative for the Labor Day weekend holiday beginning 6pm Friday, August 29th, 2014 and will conclude at 6am Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014.
Per the Texas Transportation Code: All persons arrested for DWI will first be offered the opportunity to voluntarily provide a breath and/or blood specimen. If they refuse both, the arresting officer will prepare a blood warrant and have it signed by the on-duty magistrate.
This can all be avoided if one chooses to have a designated driver or take a cab!
Please forward this information to your family and friends who plan on going out to take part in festivities over the holiday weekend.
