No refusal weekends are good weekends to call cabs if you are out on the town and enjoying alcohol. In fact any time you are out drinking is a good time to call a cab. However, the stakes really go up for drunk drivers on a “no refusal weekend.” And you can bet for sure that this upcoming 4th of July weekend will be a no refusal weekend for Dallas and Collin Counties.

What a no refusal weekend means is that if you get pulled over on suspicion of drunken driving you will be given the option of providing a breath or blood sample. If you refuse to provide a sample, a warrant will be secured to take a blood sample to measure your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and of course these results will be used against you at your trial.

The police will be very aggressive in looking for drunken drivers. Austin had a no refusal weekend recently and 51 people were arrested during the course of the weekend. So be careful out there during the upcoming holiday. Just take it easy on yourself and others and call a taxi.
